Half Man Half Biscuit – Komedia, Bath

Support tonight came from Roja, not the best support band I’ve seen, but by no means the worst. They finished off with a decent version of Nimrod’s Son by Pixies.

As always, Half Man Half Biscuit were superb, playing for nearly two hours before heading back north. Inter-song banter revolved around Arnold Ridley, the one-way system at the bottom of Walcot Street, and Barnestoneworth United.
