The Housemartins. Paul Heaton, Stan Cullimore. Flag Day Album Version. Stan Cullimore, Paul Heaton, Ted Key. London 0 Hull 4 is the debut album by The Housemartins, released in 1986. It contains the singles Flag Day 124 UK, Sheep 54 UK, Happy Hour 3 UK and Think for a Minute 18 UK. The title refers to the band's home town of Kingston upon Hull and is in the format of a football score. It also refers to Paul Heaton's assertion that the Housemartins were only the fourth best band in Hull. In other words, Hull had four great bands, compared to none from London. The other three Hull bands in. Album 1986 16 Songs. London 0 Hull 4. Alternative 1986. Like a box of chocolate truffles with BBs hidden in them, a Housemartins album offers deceivingly simple and tuneful pop songs that are designed to cause you some discomfort once you start chewing on them. Singer and songwriter Paul Heaton sings with a disarmingly boyish voice, high and adenoidal, and his bandmates contribute angelic harmonies as well as sweet and straightforward guitar pop instrumental settings.

London 0 Hull 4 Tracklist. Happy Hour Lyrics. Though dismissed by naysayers as a poor mans version of the Smiths, the Housemartins along with the Style Council, Billy Bragg and the Redskins among others were at the forefront of 80s agitpop. Blending socialist politics and Christianity with a dose of soul and gospel the inner sleeve of the album exhorted fans to Take Jesus Take Marx Take Hope , the fourth best band in Hull wrapped barbed and frequently hard-hitting lyrics in insanely catchy melodies
