Soft Verges might have yer typically wry Half Man Half Biscuit lyrics, but its sparse arrangement with just some (nice) acoustic guitar and a little bit of harmonica wouldn’t leave it out of place on many an album from the sort of artists we get at the Cambridge Folk Festival (I should point out that I’ve been lobbying for an invitation to be extended to HMHB to this event for years). It’s a truly great song, which shouldn’t be denied the appreciation it deserves just because the subject matter is so whimsical.
