Half Man Half Biscuit are a comedy outfit (I think it's insanely generous that their Wikipedia article describes them as satirical) and as such hold very little interest to me, I don't mind laughing - and I don't even mind laughing at song lyrics, but I prefer my humour to be a part of the song, not all there is of it. HMHB's humour is front and centre and pretty much revolves around throwing out pop-culture references and... well that's about it.
If they can get a laugh purely out of mentioning Una Stubbs or Stevie Nicks, Bob Todd or Dairylea triangles then that's all they need to do - or perhaps make tiresome references to the TV of their born-in-the-60s audience and that's pretty much HMHB. "Oh yes [snigger] we'll sing about Camberwick Green and mention drugs... and swear a bit - that'll be funny because all those people who watched it back then are probably smoking dope now... and swearing [giggle]".
They are just the indie Barron Knights and I find it remarkable that they've managed to carve a 30+ year career out of it... but then The Barron Knights are still working so I perhaps shouldn't really be surprised.
I listened to this with a fair amount of skipping because it really was unbearable, juvenile nonsense.
