Scouse band Half Man Half Biscuit pen tunes dubbed anthems of the underground which stick two fingers up at the establishment.
Since the release their debut album Back In The DHSS in the 80s the band has produced punk-driven, lyrical rants and protests against mainstream and celebrity culture.
Guitarist and songwriter Nigel Blackwell formed the band as a way of “getting through the day” rather than spending his time “robbing cars and playing football like normal people do.”
HMHB’s sardonic take on life has attracted fans from many corners of society, ranging from DJs like John Peel and Andy Kershaw to cricket’s David Lloyd, who regularly references the band’s lyrics in his commentary.
Half Man Half Biscuit will be playing live at the Robin 2, Bilston, on Friday September 17, they will be supported by The Humdrum Express.
