Preview: Half Man Half Biscuit

by Adam Aiken

Half Man Half Biscuit will be bringing their combination of satire and surrealism to Norwich later this month on one of their rare outings.

Assuming they don’t get waylaid In A Suffolk Ditch en route from the Wirral to the Waterfront, the sold-out venue can expect to enjoy some wry observations on life from Nigel Blackwell and friends on Friday, November 11 – even if Norwich is one of the seemingly few places yet to feature in HMHB lyrics.

Songs such as National Shite Day, For What Is Chatteris, Fuckin’ ’Ell It’s Fred Titmus and We Built This City On A Trad Arr Tune are likely to be augmented in the set with tracks from this year’s release, The Voltarol Years.

HMHB are noted for maintaining a low profile and sticking to a light touring schedule – the Norwich show will be their first since a Blackpool gig in early October, and their next performance is scheduled for Hull in mid-December.
