THE NEXT STAGE of the campaign to save our beloved 6Music is here!

PLEASE buy Joy Division Oven Gloves by Half Man Half Biscuit THIS WEEK currently no 3 in Amazon download charts and help give a clear message to the BBC to reconsider the decision to close the unique 6 music.

Think Amazon is cheapest place to buy and it counts towards the charts!!

Great song by a great band who have never had a chart hit before.

THANKS

I do genuinely want a pair of Joy Division oven gloves... maybe Peter Hook can flog 'em at his Unknown Pleasures gigs.

EDIT: Is there something I can download to stop 6Music playing that bloody awful Drums single?

And my first reply from a fan of the finest English group ever (XTC) - IMHO

Great idea. Great song. Brilliant band. Bought it. Hot too.

Not being from the UK, am I buying oven gloves or a song? :oops:

I am so disappointed that these are not actually oven gloves...

Ok never mind from above.... Ha Ha

Who names an album oven gloves. LOL

Not just your humble opinion

I was after the gloves too - thought the half biscuit was Oreo (or at least it looked that way in the pic).....

I'm not sure about the cause but anything that gets HMHB in the charts is OK by me.

Good luck with the campain but I've got a feeling 'the light at the end of the tunnel is the light of an oncoming train.' ;-)

Self promo.... cold/spammed.

Why?

Good track - cheap price. Good cause...

The only Radio Station worth listening to in my opinion, it is crazy that the BBC are considering shutting down the only national station that actually broadcasts new music, something which Peel championed, and which since his sad departure has been a saviour for music fans.

Didn't stop the voters for getting the RATM song to number 1 on Xmas on here, that wasn't spammed and far less important. If anyone wants to support new music its simple, they don't buy cack like X Factor singles anyway, they should check out new talent on Radio 6 and see bands live, real talent.

Perhaps Gary_RIP thinks you are a member of Half Man Half Biscuit ;-)

I think he needs a good dose of Trumpton Riots.

Shouldn't think so... check out the avatar. If it was Tranmere Rovers then you might have a point :thumbsup:

HMHB are probably the last band on earth into self promotion – is it true they won’t play a gig unless they can get home at night to sleep in their own beds?

:giggle:

More football related :

The band played live more infrequently. Half Man Half Biscuit turned down the chance to appear on The Tube, as Tranmere Rovers were playing that night, even though Channel Four offered to fly them by helicopter to the game.

They wouldn't want to play if it coinsides with a match.

I think he likes Craig David, certainly his avatar looks like him :-D

But where's his kestrel?

Surely this is a great big con.

No money made from this will go to anyone but the band (and of course record label and such). They're basically just jumping on the bandwagon.

Buying this to show support for 6 Music makes as much sense as buying a donkey.

I'd love to be proved wrong. Perhaps some money is going towards buying campaigning banners or something...

The campaign has nothing to do with HMHB. Anyone who knows them realises they have absolutely zero interest in commercial success. It was started for the following reasons:

1. 6Music is the ONLY station you ever hear the band on
2. It’s one of the most popular HMHB tracks played there
3. It references another 6Music touchstone, Joy Division
4. They were one of Peel’s favourite bands
5. Oh, and it’s bloody funny

It was one of several possible tracks mooted to raise awareness. Another was Jarvis Cocker's 'C**** Are Still Running The World'. But that wouldn't get much airplay, would it?

Some right beauts on here!
Ah, "Doing The Len Ganley Stance", " All I Want For Xmas Is A Dukla Prague Away Kit", "99% Of Gargoyles Look Like Bob Todd". Real Music played by real men, I tells yah!

Wow...if HMHB make money out of this by the record buying public actually buying it then kudos to them and their record label, we are not talking about EMI here, Probe Plus is a record label based in Liverpool, England. It was founded by Geoff Davies, an enthusiastic promoter of small, unsigned bands, who describes the label as "Music to drive you to drink".

If money goes to help more unsigned bands that then get signed by Probe Plus and get radio play like Peel did for many, and 6Music continue the tradition in doing so, I am all for it. :whistling:

Its all about getting some publicity to the campaign - the group did not ask for the tune to be used - but hey if the Half Man's get some money out of this I don't begrudge them after 25 years of relative obscurity they sure as hell deserve it - and how good will it be to hear in the chart rundown "and in at no 6 we have a new entry its its....!" :thumbsup:

Good to see this getting a bit hot.

Do something worthwhile and buy this people. It will be the best chart number six for a good few years....hopefully.

Considering how many people are unemployed at the moment, they should have just re-released 'Back in the DHSS'

It's ok to download this via itunes, right?

Absolutely - just dearer but still counts towards charts

It will count in the charts, but it's cheaper at Amazon.

Great minds think alike TMB ;-)

You can't beat Oven Gloves!

6Live only gets 100,000 listeners average per month, how much of our licence fee is paying to keep this Radio station going to satisfy a tiny proportion of the paying population?
