The newest offering from Leeds beat combo Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers is as beautifully executed as it is ridiculous. Imagine the subversive surrealism of Vic Reeves, the splendid chappery of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and the wistful poetic eclecticism of The Divine Comedy.
That’s Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers.
Dinosaurs Ate My Caravan is the eagerly awaited follow-up to The Greatest Show On Toast and Interspecies Disco. It’s a hymn to a range of contemporary issues, from soy milk to David Attenborough; tea and biscuits to mysterious uncles. There’s a lament at the passing of dinosaurs, an in-depth study of the formation of snow and an ode to the virtues of the tweed jacket.
Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers - featuring Sam on tuba, Matthew on drums, Bob on piano and Dean on voice and ukulele - have been thrilling audiences all over the UK since 2006.
They offer a suitably eccentric range of merchandise for ‘friends of the badger’, all helpfully arranged into tiers of fandom: decide how much you like them and you’ll find merch to suit.
All in all Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers are pretty good eggs. Why not have them on toast tomorrow for your breakfast?
