What musician in his right mind would name himself after two vegetables? Maybe the sort of artist who has not only decided to make them his chief source of nourishment but also subscribes to the metaphor of a tasty yet at times contrasting potpourri, a heady mix in which seriousness is often overpowered by a sense of humour verging on the absurd. Lateral and forward-thinking, always searching for new approaches, yet with a latent tendency to pedantry – this generates a degree of tension that invests experiences, situations, insights and feelings with a unique musical language which comes across as natural and authentic, occasionally mannered and elaborate but often highly direct and blunt.
