90 Bisodol (Crimond) is the twelfth album by UK rock band Half Man Half Biscuit, released in September 2011.

The inner sleeve includes a modified version of the painting Christ's Entry into Jerusalem by William Gale (1823–1909),[3] in which one onlooker holds a sign with the words "Dirk Hofman Motorhomes". This is a reference to a man who holds such a sign at the finish of European cycling races.[citation needed]
