Played a few moments ago on Steve’s show, tonight’s One Hit Wonder was Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, Please from 1980. Inspired by the lead singer’s failed attempt to by a drink just before closing time, the song had accidental success and was originally intended as a filler ‘B – Side’. However, it was picked up by BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Reid and found a wide audience. Whilst the band had a couple of mildly successful songs after this, they quickly faded away into the history of 80’s Punk.
If you’d like to hear it again, there are links to the video on YouTube and also to purchase it on iTunes and Amazon (12″ Mix).
