While some might consider Family Cactus as spiky a musical proposition as the group's name suggests, such an obvious interpretation doesn't even skim the surface of the evocative music made by this New Zealand group. Led by multi-instrumentalist/composer/singer Adam Ladley, Family Cactus comprises seven members of differing musical pedigrees all united by musical purpose on debut LP, Come Howling. "We're attempting to make music that means something", says Ladley. "With seven members we end up creating music that we wouldn't ordinarily make. We want to make music that we can play and sing as loud as we want to, but at the same time play music that is dynamically interesting."
