Music for Biscuits

I commend this album to you (I have heard bits of it and ordered a copy) http://www.boomkat.com/tellafriend.cfm?id=23853 There are some samples on the website, the third one is for Southern Gas and is particularly fine - I suspect it was an internal promotion for their salesmen rather than a TV advert. As the site says 'Accompanied by properly extensive liner notes, 'Music For Biscuits' offers a fascinating glimpse into a bygone era, and does so with charm, wit and just the right amount of melancholic pathos. Buy buy!'

If you are particularly paranoid about Safeness For Work (TM) you might want to avoid the site from the record label http://www.trunkrecords.com/turntable/biscuits.shtml - the slogan is 'Music, Nostalgia and Sex' and they also sell e.g. collections recorded from flexi-disks given away with porn mags. They also do a record / CD of music from the Tomorrow People, scarily enough.
