Half Man Half Biscuit: An Appreciation

Alexis Dubus

Comedian Alexis Dubus unearths an overlooked national treasure, Merseyside’s cult band Half Man Half Biscuit, whose lyricist Nigel Blackwell was described by John Peel as “our greatest living poet and satirist.” A 16-album, 33-year retrospective in one hour. Dubus unpicks the cryptic lyrical codes, plays some favourite excerpts and celebrates one of Britain’s smartest, funniest and most reclusive social commentators.
