The Housemartins
The People Who Grinned Themselves To Death

It's quite silly to forget about the Housemartins when we recall great '80s indie bands. They were enormously popular at the time outselling all the people who have ended up more lauded. They were kind of like an 80s indie the Monkees. Catchy songs, fun personas but as with everything Paul Heaton has been involved in there were serious messages behind all the seemingly lighter than air pop fun. This is their second and final album from 1987.

The Beautiful South
Miaow

Once Hull's second biggest employer, the Beautiful South were an incredibly successful collective and the second band to emerge from the brain of Paul Heaton after his earlier the Housemartins. Miaow was their fourth album and contained the usual pop froth with hidden dark and provocative lyrics. So provocative in fact that singer Briana Corrigan left before the album was recorded over lyrical disagreements.
