If Half Man Half Biscuit did not exist, it would be imperative to invent them. Since their formation nearly 30 years ago, their presence has been a necessity. In essence the vehicle for the observations, ramblings and creations of front-man Nigel Blackwell, they are a counterblast to the processes of modern life. Throughout changing times they have spanned the decades, released 13 full-length albums and dropped a thousand-and-one pop culture references; from BBC Radio's Charles Nove to former England cricketer Fred Titmus.
HMHB are a truly genuine band, blessed with a magical capacity to make the most jaded of listeners fall back in love with music again.
Witty and dry, sardonic yet never cynical, melodically infectious yet edgy sing along songs, these four lads who shook the Wirral are perhaps still to some extent an undiscovered national treasure.
Their latest album No-one Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your F*ckin' Hedge Cut, sees more of Nigel’s surreal observations on everyday life. A few shining examples are 'Kn*bheads on quiz shows" and Man Of Constant Sorrow (With A Garage In Constant Use).
So grab your Joy Division Oven Gloves and don your Dukla Prague away kit, as The Biscuit are coming to town.
