Half Man Half Biscuit – The Charlotte, Leicester

Nowhere near as much travelling today, and a much more intimate venue. Support came from the rather good MJ Hibbett & the Validators complete with a rendition of “Hey Hey 16K”. Nigel seemed on much better form tonight resulting in far fewer lyrical cock-ups.

As with last night, there were surprisingly few people sporting Dukla Prague away shirts.

    I’ve just listened to “Hey Hey 16K”… what a pile of nonsense, but still quite good…

    That’s only because your first spectrum had 48K and a better keyboard than my ZX81 with a lowly 1K and an awful keyboard, the song just doesn’t have the same level of nostalgia for you.
