Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Thursday Dec 13, 2012 (7pm)
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs makes music at the central point between pop, electro, house and melodic, tuff rave - and his debut album ‘Trouble' is just more proof that TEED's Orlando Higginbottom is one of the most fascinating, brilliant and musically kaleidoscopic artists in the world right now. And he's about to stomp all over everywhere. When Orlando Higginbottom was four or five he worked out how to work his Dad's CD player and soon had three favourites on repeat: Rossini's 'Overtures', Holst's 'The Planets' and Gershwin's 'Rhapsody In Blue'. "Classical music was 99% of my listening until I was about ten. I thought Mozart was really cool. I had a book, an A-Z of composers, that I read every night. They were like rock 'n' roll stars to me." This remained the case until the boy chorister (his father is the conductor of the choir at New College, Oxford) hit 13, at which point he absorbed another culturally deep and musically exciting musical genre: jungle.
