    Default The Housemartins.

    Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim used to play in this band. They are dead awesome and everyone with two ears should check them out.

    Try the following songs:
    People Who Grinned Themselves to Death
    Sheep
    Happy Hour
    Caravan of Love
    Build
    Me and the Farmer
    Five Get Over Excited
    I Smell Winter

    They're The Smiths meets gospel meets politics. They're so much fun.

    The male singer from "The Beautiful South" used to be in that band aswell.I haven't heard much of their stuff to be honest.I think I have heard that "Happy Hour" song though as I remember seeing one of their videos that was set in a pub.Jeez,I need my own computer!(Can't download stuff onto my dad's computer.He is paranoid about viruses,plus he needs the memory space to store his artwork.Darn it.:-/)

    Indeed, Chris, they do. "Caravan of Love" is the accappella song. It's pretty interesting.

    And yes, Sara, the lead singer and the (second) drummer later formed Beautiful South. I haven't listened much of that band. My dad actually got me into The Housemartins. He had a cd and dvd and the music videos were so hilarious I had to love them.

    Link? No, use a sharing software, doofus. Or just google the band's name.
