Half Man Half Biscuit have been writing their own brand of surrealist, sarcastic, sardonic rock songs since 1984, mixing humour and bleakness in equal measure.
A favourite of legendary broadcaster, John Peel, he once declared the band a ‘national treasure’ and stated in 1997 that "In a decently ordered society, members of Half Man Half Biscuit would be routinely carried shoulder high through the streets of every city they visited". The band released they’re 14th LP last year entitled No-one Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your Fuckin Hedge Cut proving they’ve still got their finger on the pulse.
