Ladybird is a name that has been used in England for more than 600 years for the European beetle Coccinella septempunctataCoccinellidae are a family of beetles belonging to the superfamily Cucujoidea, which in turn belongs to the series Cucujiformia within the suborder Polyphaga of the beetles (Coleoptera). Their relatives within the Cucujoidea are the Endomychidae (“handsome fungus beetles”) and Corylophidae (“minute fungus beetles”). Worldwide, nearly 6,000 species of ladybirds are known, of which 98 are currently reported to occur in Florida .

The Coccinellidae are generally considered useful insects, because many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places. Within the colonies of such plant-eating pests, they will lay hundreds of eggs, and when these hatch the larvae will commence feeding immediately.However, some species do have unwelcome effects. Among these, the most prominent are the subfamily Epilachninae, which are plant eaters. Usually, Epilachninae are only mild agricultural pests, eating the leaves of grain, potatoes, beans, and various other crops, but their numbers can increase explosively in years when their natural enemies are few, such as parasitoid wasps that attack their eggs. When that happens, they can do major crop damage. They occur in practically all the major crop-producing regions of temperate and tropical countries.

“The Giants Sounds of Little David” is a lurid and wretched album totally unknown by the masses. Released sometimes in the 70s, in an era where Glam Rock was filling the air. Little David, like many other teenagers of his time embraced with enthusiasm this movement and wrote without thinking twice this viscid record. This instrumental piece of work features the best tracks that Little David recorded in his whole career, “Let’s go to the Hash Bar” is probably the most famous of all tracks. Little David experimented with his double neck guitar landscapes that no other musician have visited before. Glam Rock riffs clash with the funky-upbeat chords which seldom remind us some classical-neo realist music with an almost semiotic approach.  Little David has no shame to advertise his interest in drugs, “You can always find cocaine between my teeth” is another example where the young guitarist is mixing some well known blues riffs with some Cuban style rhythms. The closing song of the album (“Uncle Booze”) is one of the longest instrumental piece ever written by this very stoned guitarist. The album is nowadays impossible to find, no songs on the internet, rumors say that Little David himself filled with shame and disgrace has deleted with rage and fury all the traces of this frigged and fetid record. But the lucky owners of the few printed copy of this fulsome vinyl may decide one day to upload some of the tracks on the internet, I certainly hope so but until then it’s all wrapped up in a mystery which only Little David and those few lucky fans can enjoy at best.

So long,
