Peel Session: Half Man Half Biscuit (1999)
HELLO! Sorry for the quick break in transmission there folks, had a busy few days. Tonight i'm gonna give you the first in a number of Half Man Half Biscuit sessions that i've been listening to a lot recently. They're one of those classicly British bands that manage to mix humour with social reference and a bit of romance in a way that I can't help but love. They recorded 12 sessions for Peel, which I believe makes them the band to have recorded either the second or third largest amount (The Weddoes are the other band!), and their sessions were always a lot of fun.
This one was recorded in the runup to the release of the album Trouble Over Bridgwater (2000), more specifically on the 9th September 1999. Enjoy!
