My Name's Dean I am into bomb cold biscuit heads in the biscuit just I am singer unequally player and I have written a song about Protection Society now. This isn't something you just come across the thing. That's a great thing for a song. Are you a member or an ex member? I have been a member of the National Society and I'm still a member of the league's Brunch Baba. I'd snap at the start time. Yeah he going to all the meetings but I liked it when I used to go. So Yeah and capable of CACTI brilliant and one of the things I love about. This is the way you recite all these Latin names speech as for me as somebody who loves Latin names is make baby. Ridiculously excited takes a certain kind of brain to be able to turn this stuff into a song accompanied. A must say by wonderful video. Which is absolutely amazing. I think he's going to give me a nightmare. Though that video the idea of you guys will turning it slowly turning into CACTI. was brilliant. Brilliant the terrifying. Well when he really in the city so take a life of it so that means for was not lost on me. I have to say having spent much of yesterday. Moving talk between different parts of my house and greenhouse I could I can. I can totally understand that injuries. Yeah a few a few brushes with a couple of things. I should have known better than to to brush past. Yeah that's just. The nature of the beast isn't it? I love is that you really doing capture late in the song the whole ethos and atmosphere of the society in all its eccentric. Brilliant nece about it. Just kind of people are interested so I really enjoy like I'm like I like things like you know people who are just interested in something and they just do it and they find that the people who are interested as well and they just sort of full mclovin society or wherever. They won't do it. It's nice because it just people who have very interested so people we've dumpster. Us or South America to desert dot you look at these. Cacti in their naturally by bringing a slide in for everyone to say about you it's nursing in is a your. I'm sure you have a loyal and passionate fan base all of your songs about CACTI and succulents so what are the kind of topics. Do you cover the songs. I imagine that you're not going to many traditional kind of I love her and she loves me kind of songs not really. It's funny people. Society should write what you look for something if you sell impersonal into into the songs but I do I do about what I know why I'm interested in. Why not. Why not the kind of things that people know we write songs about that was sung about Venus flytrap on the the new album? The caxtons looking at stuff. He's also lyrics without taking from the comedy responsibility newsletter from nineteen to allow. What happens real trouble? That's why we have some real trouble tracking down which issues from we talked to society. We wanted to try to personally written the lyrics from find out who was exactly so it was a bit difficult but Yeah so 'cause I was I was in the kind of response is around. Then I used to below the most pitcher plum with amazing on the. Yeah so it it. It's things I'm interested. Basically this like things in the natural world Although segments that I just just I mean he's me things I think funny. Oh funny ideas you know. I'm not just looking through the This list of song titles from your album thought Porridge. I'm liking the sound of when we will bakers and also British headpiece champion because one of the things that's Talking about had one of the things that you are on your website does say moustache powered two doors which is a reference to your use of brass instruments which I am also delighted by. I hate to pigeon holed music but it do you sort of put yourself in a particular genre difficult. Because I don't think it stunned jumped. Descriptions really scribe us very well so it's not that I want to be an agenda but I think saying specific genre people go. Oh it's going to sound a lot so I suppose it's like a kind of like a kind of psychedelic. Music whole a spouse. If it's so the closest thing I could say even dot no message really children genre what I love about it is. I think it's is kind of the sounds like a terrible cliche but it really is fun for all the family. I can imagine anybody of any age listening to this and watching the video and just totally falling for your eccentric and a delightful way style of doing things which is which certainly certainly captured me. And I'm going to have to go listen to Venus flytrap now because that sounds right up my street. We'll take thank you very much for joining me. I'm GONNA play For my listeners. The end of the episode.
