(A gratuitous) Half Man Half Biscuit Top Ten Videos (because they’re doing a short tour in May)
HALF MAN HALF BISCUIT Top Ten Videos on You-tube
The truly legendary “humour-based” indie-rock band Half Man Half Biscuit – beloved of John Peel and Fall-fans who thought they lost-it-after-Brix left, are doing a short tour in May 2016.
When we say short… we mean three fuckin’ measly dates. The lazy, lazy bastards. Three. ( Count ’em!) Friday 13 May Southampton Engine Rooms, Saturday 14 May Cardiff Tramshed and Thursday 9th June Cambridge Junction …
So to celebrate and promote and ‘raise awareness’ I thought I’d lazily trawl You-Tube for ( not even the most popular) but my personal favourite or most-interesting HM HB videos thereon . And here they are – in no particular order.

An e-mail was sent into the show promoting the band ‘Half Man Half Biscuit’. Karl only saw the name of the band and genuinely believed there was a person who was half man and half biscuit.
