Since then, they have released a further 12 albums with Nigel Blackwell never taking the music business too seriously. According to Nigel, the reason he started writing songs, was due to the fact, that when he left school in Birkenhead, the only other option was to become a heroin addict.
With lyrics such as, “She’s the main man in the office in the city and she treats me like I’m just another lackey. But I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki” nobody could dispute he chose the correct career path.
Their latest album No-one Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your F*****’ Hedge Cut, sees more of Nigel’s surreal observations on everyday life. A few shining examples are ‘Knobheads on quiz shows” and ‘Man Of Constant Sorrow (With A Garage In Constant Use)’.
