Half Man Half Biscuit anyone?




Handed a CD-R by a very good friend the other day, which has much stuff I will share with you.

Amongst the stuff are three tracks from the 1999 John Peel session that Half Man Half Biscuit recorded for John Peel, and if anyone can furnish me with the fourth track 'Gubba look a likes', I would be eternally grateful.

Half Man Half Biscuit -'Bottleneck At Capel Currig.' mp3

Half Man Half Biscuit -'Uffington Wassail.' mp3

Half man Half Biscuit -'24 Hour Garage People.' mp3 (This is the version that reached no.30 in the 1999 Festive Fifty. The following year, the song was recorded for the album Trouble Over Bridgewater (geddit?!)

meanwhile, here at the Half man Half Biscuit site page, there are various sessions recorded for Peel (one) and Andy Kershaw (two) this decade.

If anyone can help with an mp3 of Joy Division Oven Gloves from 2004 (the Peel session version) or even the entire session that would be great.

Oh, and while I'm at it, having difficulty getting my hands on the following tracks from the Peel Festive Fifties of 1999 and 2000. If these have become available on iTunes or emusic over the last two weeks I apologise but they weren;t there before I went away:

1999
Orbital -'Style' (Which one? Different versions appear on the net)
Sonic Subjunkies -'Do You Even Know Who You Are?
Kraken -'Side Effects'
Plone -'be Rude To your School.'
Miss Mead 'Living City Plan'
Wheat -Don't Hold You.'

2000
Cowcube -'Popping Song.'
Lab 4 -'Candyman.'
Mighty Math -'Soul Boy.'

I was going to say I've got the 2004 HMHB session with JD Oven gloves, but it looks like you're sorted.
