Half Man Half Biscuit on Marc Riley, 2010
2010 has promised us a lot of things that it hasn’t delivered on – a play-off push from Northampton Town, dead pool points from Al-Megrahi’s death, hit blog IchLugeBullets capitalising on its early popularity and ascending to the next level – but if Probe Plus’s rumours of a new Half Man Half Biscuit album dropping in the next few months are true, we’ll forgive the shitheap the past three seasons has consisted of.
HMHB turned up on Marc Riley’s show a week or so back, playing their new material. “Left Lyrics In The Practice Room” is the pick of the bunch, but someone’s shoved them all up on Soundcloud for you all to enjoy. And you thought that website was just for bedroom musicians’ “dubstep” “experiments”. Anyway, Mart Poom and Dignitas are both namechecked on these joints, so it’s definitely business as usual for Blackwell and the boys. Enjoy:
