Biscuithead press kit

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.

 

Their latest album, 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. The latest leg of their ongoing world tour can be found here.

 

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? I know I will.

"My favourite album of the year...every track on it is a gem. The lyrics are a thing of beauty"

"Sometimes I love bands because their music is so exquisitely crafted and sometimes simply because it's irresistibly daft. In the case of Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers it's both!"

“If surreal was a path, Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers are floating above the grass alongside it on a cabbage"

"Classic English surreality, a delightful mix of Vic Reeves Big Night Out, Bonzos and Music Hall. I want to marry them all"

Bob Fischer
