Talking "Super furry animals": Have anyone heard of this band?

Anyways, I got this lyric from this band? I think they are British but am not sure?

Venus & Serena

[Raised by wolves until the age of two, my closest childhood friends and confidants were my two pet turtles, Venus and Serena:]

[Son:]
Father, father I have sinned
I dunno where to begin
Give me words of advice
I'll save them up for a clear day

[Father:]
Keep your eye upon the ball
Write your thoughts upon the wall
There's some words of advice
Save them up for a clear day

(Venus and Serena understand) (X2)
Venus and Serena understand

Flushing meadows down the stream
Living life as though it's a dream
Eat the future today
Don't save it up for a rainy day

Holy bombs make holy holes
Holy holes make homeless moles
Take the turtle and hair
Don't run around when you can walk there

(Venus and Serena understand) (X2)
Venus and Serena understand

[Son:]
Father, father, father, father can't you see?
I'm a walking tragedy
Father, father, father when I look to the past
I never realised that it wouldn't last

(Venus and Serena understand) (X4)
Venus and Serena understand
(Venus and Serena understand)
Venus and Serena understand

[Father:]
I've one final thing to say
I'm not your father anyway
Found you under a cloud
Left outside by the wolves one day, hey

Quote (Gruff):
"It's about a child, who can't communicate with his elders, growing up with two pet tortoises called Venus and Serena. But he feels that the reptiles understand. I suppose its similar to Liberty Belle in that sense, in that in this day and age the turtle seems to take on an image of wisdom compared to the people elected to governors. It uses tennis vocabulary to make the point. Venus and Serena have beautiful names and they seem to have exemplary powers. I think its about making pictures in people's minds. I'm trying to get into balladeering and narrative in songs, but I don't think I've perfected it by any means. You can put this one down to my struggle with narrative! After a song like Piccolo Snare you need a bit of light to make sure that people don't go out and jump off the nearest bridge. We feel we have some social responsibility to uplift people."
