Il fallait oser y penser, ils l'ont fait !
A double-concept concept-album, about Doctor Who and cheese. 14 original songs, 14 Doctors, 14 perspectives on cheese. The album roams across a number of genres and sounds, so we hope everyone will find some tracks they like, and some that they hate.
The Potential Bees are a Sheffield-and-also-Wakefield-based band. Despite the obvious rhyme between 'bees' and 'cheese', no insects of any kind are mentioned in this record's lyrics.
This is really a bit of self-promotion, dear readers. I've stepped away from films for a moment to tell you about an album by The Potential Bees, a small, surprising band of which I am a member.
'Time and Relative Digressions on Cheese' is a double-concept concept-album. That is, a concept-album which has two concepts, each of which is worked into every track. In this, it might be unique (though I wouldn't be terribly surprised if someone has done a double-concept concept-album in which one of the two topics is Christmas). Anyway, every track on this new work is simultaneously about Doctor Who and cheese. Fourteen Doctors, fourteen attitudes to cheese. This may sound like a terrible idea, but actually I think it allowed us to come up with tracks which would never have occurred under other circumstances.
The whole album can be had (for free, if you wish) on Bandcamp, and the opening track has a music video, visible below:
