The Housemartins: Me and the Farmer

This week's video shows the Housemartins playing live in 1986, with Norman Cook (aka Fat Boy Slim) on bass. Surely one of the most likeable bands of the era? [Later. That video disappeared, but I have found another.]

And as a bonus for lovers of agriculture-related pop from the 1980s: XTC with Love on a Farm Boy's Wages.

Housemartins were very nice boys but I prefer the Swindon pop of XTC. Think I would pick Grass as their best single and Oranges and Lemons as the top album.

Barry Andrews solo single is also worth a listen
