Earlier today we visited the magnificent Eden Project in Cornwall. If you’ve never been you really should give it a shot. In among the glorious Biomes there are a few fabulous sculptures and works of art. One of these is a giant bee and it was near this that we couldn’t resist a photo opportunity.
I suspect you may be thinking ‘this is a music blog, what the bloody hell is this idiot going on about?’ So bear with me, there is a point, a sting in the tail if you will! I see the picture above as a still from a long-lost unbroadcast episode of the 60s classic TV series ‘Land Of The Giants‘ which clearly featured my beautiful wife Catherine (a.k.a Catwoman) trying her best to protect herself from a bee fart.
So how can I relate that back to music? Arguably some of you may say that this isn’t music anyway. So here goes, for your delectation here is a great track from none other than Don Van Vliet a.k.a Captain Beefheart! (Geddit? It is kind of bee related too)
