The name of his song-anthology is obviously meant to be taken ironically. But you’ll have to admit that the British singer has given us wonderful and very successful pop songs. He was the head of „The Housemartins“ and „The Beautiful South“ but also his solowork and his later records with Jaqui Abbott are more than noteworthy. Last November he released a selection of these hits and nameing the album „The Last King Of Pop“. Consisting of the first Housemartins single „Flag Day“, their huge hit „Me And The Farmer“ also listing The Beautiful Souths „Manchester“ and „Perfect Ten“ and finished off by „7“ Singles“, the newly recorded song with Jacqui Abbott. Now Paul Heaton announced that he’ll go on tour thoughout Europe this summer, including two dates in Germany. You really should not miss out on this opportunity, if you agree that without Heaton guitar driven pop music would be a little more bleak.
