This is a superb debut outing from Bingo Records, complete with surprisingly hilarious
self-effacing 'Zine' inside..this genuinely is a very well put together package, the
excellent music matched perfectly by the huge amount of care taken over it's
presentation. Lovely stuff.

Lancastrian oddball Mr. Ben is a favourite of The Lovely Eggs and has toured with
The Wave Pictures. That’s probably enough information for you to know if this one’s
for you or not. If not - we get it, zany twee-pop isn’t for everyone. Personally
though, we’re keen. Along with backing-band The Bens, the singer turns in four bits
of charming folksy niceness on The Happy Shopper EP.

Following the amazing success of the Bingo Records Split EP, Lancaster polymath Ben
Hall, AKA Mr Ben & the Bens is back with four new songs and another UK tour to boot!
Since the release of "The Bluest Blues" and "My Museum" on the split record, Mr Ben
has toured the UK with DIY legends The Lovely Eggs, played in session for Marc Riley
on BBC Radio 6 Music, watered his houseplants, bought a new hat, eaten at least
17 pieces of toast and had a bath. After all that, it was time to record some new
stuff. Here's The Happy Shopper EP, out on Bingo Records.
