Half Man Half Biscuit: Descent of the Stiperstones

Reviewing the new Half Man Half Biscuit album 90 Bisodol (Crimond) for The Quietus, Taylor Parkes says:
For insight, wit and imagination, Half Man Half Biscuit are currently peerless. Sharp as The Fall, cackling through fag-smoke at earnest 80s positivity; jarring as The Kinks' sardonic kitchen-sink palaver in the middle of a Swinging London youth-and-beauty cult. Over the past 20 years they've written fifty or sixty songs as smart, as clear-sighted and articulate as pretty much any pop music, ever...
Look, I am sure all that is true. But the really great thing about this song is that it is called Descent of the Stiperstones and even mentions Snailbeach.
