The Lancashire Hotpots are a comedy folk band from St Helens, (historically part of Lancashire), England, formed in December 2006. The group record songs about Lancashire, technology and British culture (e.g. “Chippy Tea”, “He’s Turned Emo”, “eBay Eck”).
Their songs make use of Lancashire dialect. Their first single, “He’s Turned Emo”, gained over 230,000 plays on MySpace (as of 17 March 2008) and was featured on BBC Radio One by Colin Murray. Their debut album, Never Mind The Hotpots was a hit, reaching number one comedy album on iTunes in the UK, and number two in the BBC 6 Music Album Charts.
