Dickie Davies Eyes

I read welcome news at the weekend- Half Man Half Biscuit have a new album out in October. Rejoice.

In 1986 they released the single Dickie Davies Eyes, an absolute HMHB masterclass.

Nigel Blackwell goes on to marry together Roger Dean posters, snot disposal, Brian Moore’s head and London Planetarium, a wok, Cadbury’s Flake and oral sex, Michael Moorcock (‘Moorcock, Moorcock, Michael Moorcock you fervently moan’) and ‘a Romany bint in a field with her paints suggesting we faint at her beauty’.

But she’s got Dickie Davies Eyes.
