#328 The Housemartins – Build

You know that we’re big Beautiful South fans here at FFS so it won’t surprise you to hear we have a soft spot for the Housemartins too. Many of their seemingly more gentle tracks – including this 1987 release which tackles the destruction of communities – contain the sort of political messages that made it somewhat surprising when David Cameron claimed to be a fan a while back. Cameron is banned from Housemartins frontman Paul Heaton’s pub in Salford.
