Details

The Southmartins are the UK’s leading tribute to the music and songs of The Beautiful South and The Housemartins.

“We play songs by The Beautiful South and The Housemartins sometimes quite well. Paul Heaton says we’re “not too bad at all” apparently. We take that as high praise indeed. As you can see from our pics we’re not a***d about trying to look like the band and don’t do the “dressing up” thing. That’s fine for all the Freddies and Bongos out there just not for us. It doesn’t seem right. We just play the songs as if they were ours so we’re not afraid to play them fast and loose.”

Forming The Beautiful South after The Housemartins in 1988, Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway went on to five million sales with a string of beautiful real-life vignettes and deservedly classic hits including Song For Whoever, You Keep It All In, A Little Time, Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her, Perfect 10 and many many more; aided in no small way by a succession of brilliant female vocalists – Briana Corrigan, Jacqui Abbott and Alison Wheeler. Ever sardonic and witty, the band split in 2007 due to ‘musical similarities’.

And, of course, this brilliant tribute includes Hull’s greatest gift to the world (LONDON 0 HULL 4!) The Housemartins with Happy Hour, Caravan Of Love, Five Get Over Excited, Build, Me And The Farmer etc.
