ANY band which extols the virtue of the fish and chips and pints of bitter is all right by me.

What's more, if they hate musical fads and designer lagers, they deserve a glowing review.

The Lancashire Hotpots are reminiscent of John Shuttleworth, heavy Northern accents, barrelfuls of wit and tunes that you find yourself whistling when you really shouldn't.

Highlights include Chippy Tea, Bitter, Lager, Cider, Ale, Stout and eBay eck, geddit?
