Jasper’s New Music Takeaway – T.E.E.D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, a title no doubt dreamt up circa 2008 when it was ‘cool’ to have a ridiculous band name, See also; ‘Someone still loves you Boris Yeltsin’ and ‘Orchestral Manoeuvres in the dark’ .  What the latter didn’t have however was an equally ridiculous real name! T.E.E.D or Orlando Higginbotham as his parents cruelly named him, sounds like the hybrid of a well-known Elf Hollywood actor and an Ex-Stoke City centre-half.

Banter to one side, his music – particularly his latest offering ‘Trouble’ released earlier this month on Polydor, is nothing to make a mockery off. Here’s ‘Tapes & Money’, probably my favourite track on the record….

Is it a coincidence this release was timed perfectly with the announcement of a 4th instalment of the Jurassic park franchise? Yep, think about it….. Don’t be surprised if you see some audacious publicity stunt smeared across the tabloids involving Geoff Goldblum in a ‘T.E.E.D’ jacket racing down Oxford Street in the back of a 4X4!
