Half Man Half Biscuit

Half Man Half Biscuit

Well, in my last blog post I spouted off about the new album by Fuck Buttons, so I won’t go on about that again now.  There are a few wonderful things out at the moment:  Daniel Johnston‘s new album has whetted my appetite for seeing him at the Brudenel in Leeds on 6th November;  the b-side to the new Slow Club single (Trophy Room) is a hidden gem; a new EP by The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart is a welcome surprise; and the new single by Frightened Rabbit bodes well for the third album; and to top it all Half Man Half Biscuit are playing at the Stylus in Leeds tomorrow night!

This is what I played tonight:

Chicken Feed – Lights Out (feat. Hazel Mills)
Neil McSweeney – Half A Mind
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Higher Than The Stars
