The House of Love is the second album by British alternative rock band The House of Love, released on Fontana Records in 1990. It should not be confused with the band's debut album, which is also called The House of Love. It is generally referred to either as Fontana (after the record label it was issued on) or The Butterfly album (after Trevor Key's sleeve art).
The House of Love are a British rock band who were primarily active from the late 1980s to early 90s, and reformed in 2005. The band's original lineup was: Guy Chadwick (vocals, guitar), Terry Bickers (guitar), Andrea Heukamp (vocals, guitar), Pete Evans (drums) and Chris Groothuizen (bass). Bickers left in 1989 and was replaced by Simon Walker, who in turn was replaced by Simon Mawby in 1992. Andrea Heukamp left the band in 1988, returning briefly in 1991.
Here the House Of Love elect not to rehash anything on that record, instead a zippy version of upcoming single Destroy The Heart and the glistening guitars and Smiths-style melancholy of Blind steal the show. Three months later and they were back on the Peel Show, the slow build-up on the new version of album track Love In A Car and rarer item in the languid Don’t Turn Blue (aka Soft As Fire) being highlights. The final acoustic session finds the band looking ahead, with the first two tracks In A Room and The Beatles And The Stones destined for their first Fontana opus. The House Of Love certainly stood at the apex of UK Independent music with the advent of this album.
The alternative rock band The House of Love is like a treasure hidden in the UK’s music scene. The band had gone through a famous break-up in 1993 after their early successful singles such as Christine and Shine On. The break-up between lead singer Guy Chadwick and lead guitarist Terry Bicker inevitably held their career back to some degree. After their reformation in 2003, the band announced their coming back with new album She Paints Words in Red, and shows what matters most in music for them- splashes of solitude mixed with lovingness in everyday life
East 17. Album Walthamstow. House of Love Lyrics. CHORUS: Everybody in the house of love Everybody in the house of love One love, one God Everybody in the house of love. We've got to stop the pain, and put the wars on hold Let the power of love, inside the soul unfold Free the mind, let it rise above We've got to change this world to a world of love Mother Earth she's on overload One more war and she might explode We've got to look back and see a. love from the past We've got the time to change it but it's running out fast.
