Have you heard of Half Man, Half Biscuit the band? I quite like them, they are different!!
They are from Birkenhead in Liverpool and I found out about them on you tube when I was bored years ago, lol
Anyhow, here are two from them

Ah it is a little Tullish!  Never really clocked that though we do have 12 dreams of dr sardonicus album, excellent...every song so individual.

 

I'm gonna look on wiki now for a bit of info on the bandSmiley Happy

mr skin was apparently named after band member who had shaved head

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Here's one of my favourites, a nice easy going song from Alter Bridge called All Ends Well.  Here's the link:

Ah I remember seeing that in second hand record shops regularly..wonder how scarce it is now?

 

What's your favourite song off the album?

 

We used to love the hedgehog song from many layers, just such tricky lyrics and very clever cos it's about not being able to remember them!Smiley Happy

 

Just had a look on discogs and can get an ordinary copy of hangmans lp for just over £13 - not bad!

 

Didn't think, footsteps of the heron could've been more about band member Mike Heron?
