Depending on your point of view, this lot are either a breath of fresh air, or a massive step backwards. I have just returned from their gig at Preston's 53 degrees...and the band were awestruck to be playing to their biggest audience ever (1200 people)...not bad for a pub band who have only been going a year... and their following is snowballing. The gig was a true Lancashire love-in, with the very drunk but good natured audience raising their pints and waving their arms and singing along to future classics: Chippy Tea, He's Turned Emo, Bitter Lager Cider Ale Stout, Me PSP...these are songs that are so honed they could have written themselves.

It's easy to explain their appeal, it's a tradition that goes right back to the music halls...they combine often corny, old-fashioned, but very catchy tunes with good-natured, hilariously knowing lyrics delivered with a sunny smile. Subject matter is what sets them apart...stuff the facebook generation can identify with: Emo, new technology, DJ culture...and normal day-to-day stuff. Imagine Peter Kay forming a 21st century answer to The Wurzels, with a nod to George Formby, and you are pretty well near the mark.

Lyrics are often sharply blunt...take this couplet from Chippy Tea: 'I don't want lobster thermidore with a raspberry coulis/ I'm a workin' man from Lancashire and I want me chippy tea'. Now that's funny. Their take on a medley of dance tunes: I See You Baby through Born Slippy, to Firestarter...has to be heard to be believed.

One day, if the media starts a blitz on them, these tunes may well pall, but right now I'm grinning from ear to ear. So today, they are a breath of fresh air...tomorrow?
Either way, now's the time to catch em, whilst their star is on the rise.

Absolutely brilliant album! Fantastic tunes with lyrics you can't help but sing-along with. Even the kids love it - an educational tool for all Lancastrians and those who want to be one.

Excellent album - almost every song will have you singing along, laughing at the lyrics (Chippy Tea, Sat Nav, My PSP etc.) or usually both.

The band play in pubs etc. throughout Lancashire and the North West and sometimes beyond and are very popular. Gigs are usually sold out well in advance. An Amazon sales rating of 1387 for a pub band ? These lot are good !

If only they'd come down South a bit more :-(

Who says the Lancashire dialect is dying out? This amazing mix of songs related to modern technology - wiis, playstations, inter-net dating, scooters, and e-mails shows that our county's culture is still very much alive, although we still prefer some traditions such as chippy teas and real ales to nouveau cuisine and cocktails. Each individual tune parodies a different genre of song-writing from over-sentimental American country to traditional English folk melodies. If you want an evening of non-stop laughter till your sides split with pain, then this c.d. is the one for you. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

I bought this album on the recommendation of a friend, never having heard of the Lancashire Hotpots before. With a stronger focus on comedy / parody than pure musical content (almost a Lancashire Wurzels)it's good fun - but if you hail from much further south than Lancashire / Yorkshire you might wonder what on earth it's all about.

Brilliant entertainers. I wasn't too familiar with this Band having heard only snips on the
radio but enough to make me think it was worth buying the reasonably priced cd.
Wasn't disappointed. Tuneful music witty lyrics first class performance. One of many
good thing to come out of Lancashire.

Brilliant as always. The Hotpots are fantastic entertainment. I bought this after hearing 'Chippy Tea' on the radio, and was definately not disappointed. It is good old fashioned fun, brought up to date. You can't help laughing and singing along!
