Half Man Half Biscuit - Paintball's Coming Home

He's Got The Whole World In His Hands: that was the sort of punishment our schools used to inflict on us as children. It was an irritatingly catchy bit of Christian proselytism that brought out the inner saboteur in me. I would either be overly loud and deliberately off-key, or exercise my eight year old wit to its fullest: how I would laugh at the thought of Jesus with the dog turd in his hands, or the piece of poo in his hands.

Half Man Half Biscuit had a similar idea for their 1997 album, Voyage to the Bottom of the Road. Well, okay, they had exactly the same idea. However, it's not nearly as funny as my version, which, if you remember, involved poo. They have sadly ignored the potential for toilet humour, and instead have painted a razor-sharp portrait of the narrow horizons and clichéd, second-hand opinions of suburban life. It would be caricature, if only it wasn't so awfully true. It's called Paintball's Coming Home and it could have been truly great, if only the bum:toilet ratio had been a bit higher.
