Support 88Nine And This Artist:
The Beautiful South were a British pop group formed in 1989, from the ashes of Hull, England group The Housemartins
. The band was put together by lead singer, Paul Heaton
, and drummer, Dave Hemingway
. They were joined by Sean Welch
(Bass), Dave Stead
(Drums) and Dave Rotheray
(Guitar). Rotheray also co-writes the songs with Heaton. In The Beautiful South, Heaton shared the lead singer's role with Hemingway and female singer Briana Corrigan
to create a trio of lead vocalists. This set-up helped to characterise the bittersweet kitchen sink dramas played out in Heaton's often-barbed songs.
