This is a comic called Rue Britannia which friends Hyperbubble say bis is included in the story as one of the bands the main character uses to make magic! They explain: “The story centers around a “Phonomancer”, one who uses pop records to create magic. Bis records are used in a similar manner as Kenickie records, of which the phonomancer claims, “…by the nature of their very existence, draw a line between all the forced dichotomies of modern pop. Seriousness is not the same as intelligence, no matter how many times virginal Radiohead fans reiterate it. Their wit does mean the slow-witted haven’t noticed they wrote the most incisive hymns to both ends of the rejection axis - both darkened bedrooms and darkened clubs turned into churches to the human condition….Radiohead and Shampoo? Equally Britpop. But Shampoo were better.”
