Thanks to Len Ganley we've now come across the following music video, in which the band Half Man Half Biscuit plays...

I am one of those people who, despite all the obvious advantages, dislikes virtual music libraries. I need to have the actual albums to get a feeling for the music, which otherwise sounds utterly inpersonal to me. Call me old-fashioned, but for the same reason I think a nice book - instead of a database - of all games played by Bobby Fischer is an...
