I really don't know how to take Biscuithead & The Biscuit Badgers. I imagine that this is a comedy album and upon listening to the opening tune, I must be right. There is however a level of relatability at times.
For instance, album opener 'My Mysterious Uncle' tells the tale of a man in the family who always remembers your birthday, but none of your relatives remember exactly where he came from, and second tune 'David Attenborough' lashes the national treasure with praise - something we're all certainly able to get behind.
Something I can't agree with though is the notion of: "If we are ever all wiped out I hope it's by dinosaurs", and we really do pass into the ridiculous when we hear a grown man screaming his love of his 'Tweed Jacket'.
What this group seem to do is take the obscure and seemingly 'normal', turn it into a song and have a good laugh. Case in point: 'Snow!'.
Taking almost four and a half minutes to explain how snow forms, but how it almost never reaches the ground, my mind is well and truly baffled. I'm enjoying aspects but wondering exactly why. I love comedy, but am completely unsure whether this has me onboard.
What I do know is this isn't something I'd spend money on. I'd google a track or two to share with my friends to give us a giggle, but that would be the end of my association with Biscuithead & The Biscuit Badgers, unfortunately.
'Dinosaurs Ate My Caravan' is digitally released today, with a physical release on September 29.
