Half Man Half Biscuit’s “list songs” are always good, especially when – as with Breaking News – they give Nigel the chance to fit as many things as possible into three minutes which irritate him. And indeed, probably most of us. Actually, I have a friend and fellow Biscuit fan who called his son “Fred”, only a couple of years before this song came out. Which must have been embarrassing.
