Shame they don’t gig more often, they could have been the next Barron Knights.

As I clicked on this thread "Split Single With Happy Lounge Label Mates" started on my iPod. Glory days.

Harsh Times in Umberstone Covert is currently maintaining its place high amongst my tracks of the year.

Reminds me, I miss the lovely cabber itsfredtitmus.  He'd PM you even if no one else knew you from Adam, and he was a total scholar.

I have only a few albums of theirs but the lyrics are often amazing. Sharp. And also pleasantly silly - I was just singing along to the Len Ganley Stance.

I do often wonder if they have the 'mermaid' deal going on anatomically whereby their bottom half is biscuit and their top half is man. The alternative perturbs me; a biscuit for a head and torso (presumably with human facial features, as most biscuits don't have these) with the bipedal posture of an athletic hominoid.

They're just bloody great. Their last three albums have been some of their best.

I've been listening to their LPs this week and all the best songs are the ones that my friend put a tape in the early 2000s for me. "Running Order Squabble Fest" being one of the best

"CND? CND? We're not going on after Chas N Dave"

The line "another Jack Daniels then off with me top" from Fretwork Homework pops into my head an awful lot.

Man alive, "CSI: Ambleside" is an amazing record. If only for "The Petty Sessions" and "Totnes Bickering Fair"

Will almost certainly play'em in the pub tonight, my DJ-ing partner is from Birkenhead after all.

They're one of the few bands where I prefer their later output rather than their first 4 LPs.

Agreed. I'd venture that 90 Bisodol is their best album, but last year's Creative Hub runs it close. "Knobheads On Quiz Shows" is just brilliant. Taylor Parkes' piece on them is a great primer.
