On their 1989 debut, Welcome To The Beautiful South, the UK outfit made their introduction to the world as a new breed of jaunty indie pop with bite.
This Christmas’ best indie music gifts are an embarrassment of riches for anyone still living the dreamy optimism of the 90s and early 00s.
‘The Last King Of Pop’ is a 23-track opus taking in Heaton's hits with The Housmartins, The Beautiful South, his solo titles and with Jacqui Abbott.
Both titles are part of an ongoing campaign celebrating the two bands' frontman Paul Heaton's catalogue.
British duo Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott will release ‘(Man Is) The Biggest Witch Of All’ as the third single from their Wisdom, Laughter and Lines.
Ex-Beautiful South members Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott will release ‘Wisdom, Laughter & Lines’ on October 23. It's Heaton & Abbott's second album together.
