The Housemartins- London 0 Hull 4 (1986)

 
I've been thinking a lot about the eighties recently.  Spent some time with my good friends Jim and Karl last week, first time, we reckon, since about 1988, that we'd all been together. That's what started it (or cranked it up, to be honest I'm always thinking about the eighties). And this LP has featured prominently in those recollections. Decency, virtue, honesty.  I was never a big fan of the acapella stuff. When I heard them first I thought they were going to be bigger than The Beatles...
I went to the shop and I bought a brass door knocker in the shape of Marcel Proust's nose.
