The Beautiful South - "Welcome To The Beautiful South"

 
Album cover
Beautiful South

Saying The Beautiful South was the descendant of The Housemartins is like saying New Order was the descendant of Joy Division. It was, and at the same time it wasn't really. The South is catchy, but so were The Martins. And you could pick Heaton's voice from a thousand ones, no matter what band he was singing in. Still The Beautiful South is quite another band. Housemartins are just four chaps making perfect pop music, while you must frequently think of a whole orchestra hearing The Beautiful South. The albums hit single is the known "Song for whoever". I still haven't figured out if he's pop messing up jazz or the other way round, but Heaton, boy, I love you (and you're interesting).
