Birrell or Biscuit -

Pages and Mr Black Sheep (Double A-Side)

Released 24/11/23

One part old school romantic, one part anarchist, Birrell or Biscuit's Craig Birrell is a true libertine.

This double A side release falls on his more old school romantic side.

Mr. Black Sheep is about feeling kinship with and giving love to the people who are outcast by mainstream society. 
It has been around for a while, Birrell not quite knowing how to complete it or even if he should. Then as with most things with Birrell or Biscuit, clarity sneaks in through the fug of life and Birrell turned it from a demo of semi ranting to the heartfelt ode it now is.

Daniel Johnson meets Jad Fair in a hospital car park policed by Syd Barrett anyone ?

Pages is a wistful lament about losing your mind and saying things you regret.

It came together much quicker than Mr Black Sheep. It’s rawness and honest lyrics played out over the country guitar sound that could only come from Scotland.

The songs were recorded by, Working together covertly from a Shed on a hill in Fife. 

During lockdown they remained true to themselves and constructed TSO PROJECT9 as a means to protect their sanctuary. Robert Reilly & Allan Mills - Rab and Albo formed the project and are now listened to worldwide. Proving the importance of being real and keeping true to the mission. TSO PROJECT 9 are now working with local artists and producers to create and inspire!

Music to Watch Lavalamps (EP)
Released 31/03/23

Birrell or Biscuit's debut 6 track EP release! This will comprise songs that have not been released yet from Craig's solo recording days, before the new full band line up move onto new material.

Check out the as always great and in depth review below from

The EP consists of 6 tracks of psych punk mayhem!

Title track ‘Music To Watch Lavalamps’ is the perfect opener, a proper jam in the mould of Oasis’s ‘Fuckin’ In The Bushes’


‘Double Decker Bus’ may well be the first time I’ve ever heard the store manager of Morrison’s introduce a song and then go on to narrate, over the top of a proper punk banger, about re-training as a s driver!

While ‘Boy Band’ is the antithesis of anything Five ever produced, with some hilarious subject matter lamenting the fact his Casio keyboard is in need of some new AA batteries!

‘Silly Billy’ is probably the catchiest track on the EP, it has the hooks, melodies, punk guitars and a false ending. 

Whereas ‘Hey You’ gives off some Happy Mondays vibes, it might well be my favourite track here, it stomps along with a swagger, every instrument used seems to get it’s space to shine.

Final track ‘Eye For An Eye’ is the most clear vocally with a catchy bassline and psychedelic guitars.

You might need a few listens to get your head round these songs, as ever with Birrell Or Biscuit, there’s a lot going on but with every listen you’ll find different parts, it’s like a psychedelic punk jigsaw, stick with it and you’ll be so satisfied when you solve the puzzle.

‘Music To Watch Lavalamps’ joins an impressive back catalogue since 2021’s ‘Top Of The Pops’ and there’s plenty more to come with the full band set-up.

Stay tuned for more material later in the year!
