Offal_frontHALF 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.

For proper info on the band go here or here…  but for now.  Enjoy.

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.
