Seven gigs already announced for 2014

Following the January west country two-date tour epic and the trip to that London in March, there’s a return to the ever-popular Leamington Spa and Holmfirth venues at Easter, followed by a visit to Blackburn in May. One autumn gig has also been lined up already, back at the Robin 2 in Wolverhampton.

NB57 into top 10 “Greatest Merseysiders”


Nigel Blackwell made the number 10 position in a January 2014 Liverpool Echo poll of the “Greatest Merseysiders”, thanks largely (I suspect) to the efforts of regulars to this site and to the Half Man Half Biscuit Society Facebook page. In the same newspaper’s previous poll, over 10 years ago, Blackwell made the number 57 position, leading Yahoo Groups mailing list contributor Philip Taylor to come up with the “NB57″ nickname. Whether “NB10″ will catch on is another matter. You can read the full list of great Merseysiders on the Liverpool Echo site here.
