The House Of Love – Beatles And The Stones


You can boil the genius of Alan McGee’s Creation Records down to a handful of artists. The House of Love would certainly be included in this select group. Borne out of the vocal/songwriting talent of Guy Chadwick and Terry Bickers awesome jangling guitars this was a band that nailed at least a dozen perfect pop songs. Seeing as they started out in 1986 it’s easy to see why the House of Love were the logical next step for the C86 movement. ‘Beatles And The Stones’ is a case in point with its simplistic ebb and flow propelled by the sweetest of riffs and Chadwick’s rustic singing. This is the original version taken from ‘Fontana’ (or the second self-titled LP if you prefer, or the one with the butterfly on the front if you are confused) which comes complete with that sixties newsreel audio. The House Of Love were revived last year and put together a delightful LP called ‘Days Run Away’, proving once again that talent can indeed shine on despite the passage of time. KD
