Fresh from saving Radio6 from oblivion (albeit involuntarily), Half Man Half Biscuit are making a rare sortie to the capital to bring us their chucklesome alt-folk. Tickets went on sale at noon today for their show at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on 17 June.
As well as the now-famous "Joy Division Oven Gloves", expect new song "Tommy Walsh's Eco-House" as well as "Bad Loser On Yahoo Chess", "Venus In Flares", "We Built This Village On A Trad Arr Tune", "Turned Up Clocked On Laid Off" and the ultra-short "Vatican Broadside".
Tickets can be purchased through the venue's website.
For a taster of their recent efforts, see below for a fan-made video to their song "Restless Legs", which owes something to David Lynch's surreal classic Eraserhead.
