Change of Lineup: Karl Benson joins Half Man Half Biscuit
Guitarist Ken Hancock last appeared with the band in August 2017, when he was said to be “under the weather”, and has been replaced with Karl Benson.
Karl, who had subbed at a couple of gigs in the past, came on this site to introduce himself after a few people had become confused by previously knowing him under a different (stage) name with another band.
