The next Half Man Half Biscuit release was the single "The Trumpton Riots". They had the opportunity to play this live on The Tube, but Tranmere Rovers were playing at home on the same night so they turned it down.   2

I just remembered this track and it just had to be my jam. Great on so many levels, from the ridiculous lyrics about a fabricated riot on a children's TV show (which I used to watch as a kid... well, repeats of it on C4 anyway) to that classic punk sound... absurdly brilliant. This is actually a re-mastered version of a 1986 John Peel session, with a great fan-contributed video to match.   1
