The Carnivorous Plant Society, led by trumpet and keyboard player Finn Scholes, and some of Auckland's top musicians have joined together on this album.
Playing an interesting array of instruments with the trumpet, mellophone, flugelhorn, ocarina, recorder, trombone, glockenspiel, violin, cello, double bass, guitar, vibraphone, tuba, euphonium, congas, synthesizers, keyboards and drums all have their say.The players even pucker up and whistle on occasion.Leaving an album filled with a wide mix, with Mexican mariachi mixed up with futuristic sci‚Äêfi space sounds through to macabre, spine‚ chilling nuances drawn from Stephen King novels.
The album is supported by three cartoon‚ style videos, painstakingly hand drawn by Finn Scholes at the kitchen table.
