I bought this album on vinyl when I was about 15 (in 1982 or so) - having already exhausted the Beatles back catalogue, I set about moving onto the solo releases - but isn't that what everyone does? - and I absolutely loved it.
Twenty or so years later, I still think it's a great little record. If you like Paul McCartney, then you'll love this album - every song exemplifies the man, and his capacity to write superb pieces of music, the occasional wonderful lyric, but more than any of that, this record presents Paul as a soon to be solo Beatle, proving to himself, and everyone else, that he COULD do it on his own, no matter how terrifying that prospect was at the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best..., 30 Aug 2003
Peter Kay is the funniest thing in the UK right about now. The two series of Phoenix Nights and the lesser known 'Peter Kay Thing' have catapulted him into the big time. If you tried to get tickets for any of his recent shows then you'll fully understand, how uccessful he is. I would think his mum has several estates worth of bungalows now...
Anyhow, I bought this video on the strength of Phoenix Nights and it is an absolute gem. SOOO funny. Peter doesn't stutter thru the start of the show. It's deliberate for Gods sake, as is the way Peter fires out corny old jokes (which still somehow make you laugh out loud). It's a brilliant way to start the show and is incredibly funny.

I first encountered HMHB in the mid 80's - I remember an interview with them in Melody Maker (or NME, I forget which) when 'Back in the DHSS' had just been released (yep, I am THAT old), and laughing a lot. What more can anyone ask? The only thing I bought after that was the Trumpton Riots single, and then, I'm ashamed to say, I left them behind... not really sure why... maybe it's because they split up?
Over the past few weeks I've rediscovered them, and I can honestly say that they have 'made' the last few weeks for me. I've managed to acquire 4 of their CD's in fairly quick succession - DHSS, Godcore, Wirral and this one (and I'm on the look out for the others). I haven't laughed so… Read more
