Half Man Half Biscuit – Roadmender, Northampton

Having missed seeing the Biscuit in Cambridge earlier this year, it’d been a while since I’d seen them.

The support band were nothing to write home about, starting off with a bad easy-listening version of Rock the Casbah, and going downhill from there. However to be fair they weren’t anywhere near the worst band I’ve seen supporting Half Man Half Biscuit.

8:30 came and the main act arrived on stage for their near 2-hour long set. A good mix of old and new songs, although A Country Practice was a slightly odd choice for the last song of the encore.

    Being a keen cyclist and with us obviously only performing to please you, we thought you may appreciate it all been down hill via a bad middle of the road route from the Casbah.
