The Independent Culture

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – or TEED to those in the know – is the brainchild of one Orlando Higginbottom, the on-the-button producer of the moment who serves up a veritable smorgasbord of cutting-edge bleeps and beats.

The first record I bought was...

The Jungle Book Groove on cassette, aged about five, I think. Side B had all the Jungle Book songs megamixed over a house beat.

The first gig I went to was...

Radiohead's homecoming show in South Park, Oxford, when I was 15.

My favourite album is...

It's a battle between Reprazent’s "New Forms", Talking Heads’ "Stop Making Sense (live)" and Unkle’s "Psyence Fiction".

But my parents always liked...

Bach. There was no but.

I couldn’t marry someone who liked...

X Factor.

In the studio I like to wear...

As many clothes as possible at the moment; it takes a long time to warm up.

I’d love to have on my radio show...

Earth, Wind & Fire.

One thing that must change in the music industry is...

X Factor.

A great album cover is...

Talking Heads' "Speaking In Tongues".

On my iPod I listen most to...

I don’t have an iPod. I probably listen to the radio most.

If I could have written any piece of music it would have been...

Holst’s "Planet Suite", or Smokey Robinson’s “Tracks of My Tears”.

The worst song I’ve heard is...

A dubstep remix of Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” on YouTube.

The "Household Goods" EP, which also features “Waulking Song” and “How Far”, is out now on Greco-Roman Records.
