Half Man Half Biscuit
Let's Not

This is the third single by Birkenhead surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1990, this follow-up to the indie smash hit 'Dickie Davies Eyes' failed impact on the charts despite the band being championed by the late John Peel, who called them a 'national treasure'. It is, nonetheless, a classic. Available on 12" vinyl. 

Half Man Half Biscuit
No-one cares about your creative hub so get your fuckin’ hedge cut

Well that wins album title of the year already. Now that the Fall are no longer around I'd hazard a guess that Half Man Half Biscuit are one of the few Northern English indie cults we can hang onto in these grim days. As always we just have song titles to go on at this stage but it's pretty much worth the admission price alone for examples such as 'Swerving The Checkatrade.' 

Half Man Half Biscuit
Dickie Davies Eyes

Second single from Birkenhead sardonic surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1986, the single reached number one in the indie charts and was championed by the late great John Peel. More recently, the band have been named by Andy Kershaw as 'England's greatest folk band'. This 12" vinyl version also features 'The Bastard Son Of Dean Friedman' and 'I Left My Heart In Papworth'. 

Half Man Half Biscuit
Back Again In The DHSS (+ Trumpton Riots)

Reissue of Half Man Half Biscuit’s much-loved debut LP here. This version of Back In The DHSS - now titled Back Again In The DHSS due to this being a new edition - contains the original 1985 track list, a couple of bonus beats and the contents of 1986’s The Trumpton Riots EP. Witty, erudite indie that has gone on to influence the likes of Arab Strap, Richard Dawson and The Lovely Eggs. One of John Peel’s faves, don’t you know.

Half Man Half Biscuit
Urge For Offal

Birkenhead's realest and most rambling rock band, Half Man Half Biscuit, occasionally creak out of the woodwork to throw sporadic new tunes and records our way. 'Urge For Offal' is one such moment, a completely spur-of-the-moment record that continues the band's tongue-in-cheek and delightfully surreal take on post-punk.

Half Man Half Biscuit
Some Call It Godcore

The fifth LP from the inimitable Half Man Half Biscuit here. 1995’s Some Call It Godcore may not be as well-known as HMHB albums like Back In The DHSS, but this set of erudite diatribes about The State Of Things is the equal of any of their other efforts. As song titles like ‘Styx Gig (Seen By My Mates Coming Out Of A)’ and ‘24.99 From Argos’ testify, Nigel Blackwell’s sense of humour remains undimmed on Some Call It Godcore.

Half Man Half Biscuit
This Leaden Pall

The inimitable Half Man Half Biscuit’s fourth LP gets a reissue courtesy of Probe Plus. 1993’s This Leaden Pall is about as expansive as it gets for the Merseyside group. While this record is full of the quirky, winning indie-punk that the band has made its name on, there is also some of the portent hinted at by This Leaden Pall’s gloriously gloomy artwork. As such this record provides the missing link between Aidan Moffat and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.
