Ray Gun Terrine ( feat Stuck between a Large Shark and Hot Lava Flow) is the first in the series of The Curse of the Dumbo Octopi . This introduces the character of That 3 Headed Dude in the Corner , (comprised of Ice Cream Cone Man, The Balaclovanaut’ and Wild Donkey Boy). Accompanied by their faithful morph pig Sancho, they trek the great adventure called life. This looks at the inner workings of ones mind that affects procrastination, rationalisation of stupid actions and paranoia. It also looks at stream of consciousness combining the big world around us and mundane but important thought processes – like what to have for dinner. At this point the Dumbo Octopi are only a vague concept lingering on the edges of awareness but The Curse is coming.
