Comedy Band who sing parodies of pop songs, generally by Britpop and indie bands. Comprises DJs Mark Radcliffe and Marc Riley (better known as Lard and former guitarist with The Fall).

Stemming from songs made for their BBC Radio 1 show, first the graveyard shift, then the breakfast show and now their current afternoon slot, Mark and Lard have released two albums to date.

Other tracks which made it to the radio but never to CD was Plums drop which parodied Hanson and Don't look at me whanger.

Although hilarious to fans of both their show and British music generally, you either love them or hate them, and it's a bit of an acquired taste. Just like Weird Al Yankovic, they also tend to ruin your favourite songs for you. Also spawned from the same radio programmes, check out Fat Harry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra.
