Ah, The Housemartins. The jingle. The jangle. The wit. The whimsy. The axe attacks and pyromania.
Yes, I am aware that this is a cover version. And I’m equally aware that I’ve stated before that cover versions aren’t very good or necessary. I didn’t know it was a cover at the time it was in the charts, though. That’s my only get out clause. And this is the ‘Martinses only number one. I know. Not ‘Happy Hour’. Shocker.
RIP Humberside. Gone but not forgotten. Definitely not forgotten. You can’t move in Hull for Humberside-this, Humberside-that*.
Let it go, Hull.
* I’m basing this on the amount of ‘Humber’-based organisations on Google Maps. I’ve never been to Hull. Sorry.
