Biscuithead press kit

On which side does a camel part it's hair?  When is Austria?  Does cheese affect my credit rating? All these questions can be answered by Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers.

 

From time immemorial these four musicians have stood at the gateway of nonsense begging for peanuts. Spending most of their time trapped in force fields and vortices, occasionally they're released to stalk the streets of Leeds. Then you might hear the plaintive cry of Sam’s tuba, the mournful crow of Dean’s ukulele, the excited jazzy croaking of Bob’s piano or the purr of Matty’s drums.

 

This band is riotously odd; jolly and engaging but peculiar too. There's a calypso about land hermit crabs, a celebration of David Attenborough, a lament at the passing of dinosaurs.

 

Have a listen, they might cure you.

 

 

 

 

 

BBC Introducing with Tom Robinson on 6 music 

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

Alan Raw

BBC Introducing

 

"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!"

Tom Robinson
BBC 6 Music

 

"Riotous fun, catchy melodies combined with bonkers lyrics and a winning stage charm. The perfect example of family music done really right. They have every child, adult and grandparent at Just So singing their songs weeks before they arrive; demands for their return the next year before their current set has even finished”

Cathryn Peach

Just So Festival

 

“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

BBC Radio Tees

 

“It was epic! The Badgers played a stormer and had the crowd eating out of their hand"
