The Act: JURASSIC POP

The Truth, possibly: Creeping from the wilds of Isla Nublar crafting 'well-scruffy' pop songs about Jurassic Park (and nothing else). Jurassic Pop have appeared fresh from a few preliminary winter shows, ready to ride the hype of 'Jurassic Park World' and leave the shores of Costa Rica to bring their individual brand of clade Dinosauria to the masses (whether they like it or not). Not for nothing is lead-off track 'Whoever You Are, Whoever You’re With You Must Always Make Time To Get With Jeff' being rush-released to tie in with the global launch of the new 'Jurassic Park World' cinematic opus.

The ‘Jeff’ in the song is obviously Mr J Goldblum, star of the original Jurassic franchise. One assumes he would be delighted to hear the snarly, gnarly glampunk thunderings of this track, not least because Eddie Argos from Art Brut makes a suitably louche spoken word appearance. Also, because the blooming Goldblum-related lovings don’t end there…

Cutting an EP called 'Jurassic Park 5: The Erotic Adventures Of Jeff Goldblum' in the legendary House Of Strange with starry-eyed producer Ash Gardener (Noah & The Whale, Jeremy Warmsley, Thurston Moore) and featuring special guests such as the aforementioned Mr Argos, Sam Duckworth (ex-Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly) and Dan Schrieber (QI), over the course of four tracks Jurassic Pop take on the territory other bands are afraid to tread: namely effusive hatred of treacherous Dennis Nedry, the excitement of seeing a dinosaur eating a shark and, of course, the unbridled lust for Jeff Goldblum.

"The main thing to take note of during the performance is how brilliantly clever the lyrics are, with most of the audience laughing at least five times a song."
- 7Bit Arcade

"Funny and charming."
- Punktastic

"The '90s-child charm of the likes of 'Jurassic Park # One' is never in question. And they've got a guitarist with the head of Velicoraptor. Which is nice."
- Flush The Fashion

Fully funded by shadowy scientists at now-flourishing company InGen, and managed by the benevolent John Hammond, Jurassic Pop will be finally unleashing their vinyl concept EP on fierce panda in September. Before then they will be touring venues and playing festivals over the summer, somewhat like this:

JUNE 10TH GUILDFORD THE STAR
JUNE 11TH LONDON OLD BLUE LAST
JULY 11TH 2000 TREES FESTIVAL The Croft Stage
JULY 26TH NOZSTOCK Main Stage
