The Best of the Housemartins

2004 NR

One of Britain's most popular indie groups of the late 1980s, the Hull-based Housemartins earned a loyal critical and popular following in the U.K. with their melodic guitar plucking and catchy beats. Although the group never gained more than cult status in America, their straightforward balance of simple, unfettered melodies (liberally spiced with sarcasm) helped them rise high on the British charts. Features many memorable tracks.
