The House of Love – 1986-88: The Creation Recordings

Arguably The House of Love’s best work was when they were briefly with Creation.  The Creation recordings sound sparkly and clear while over production of their work with Fontana, weighs it down. This was the classic line-up when there was no animosity between Terry Bickers and Guy Chadwick.

Bicker’s guitar work really drives songs like Destroy the Heart and Shine On. For anyone that has never heard the original version it is really is amazing. Very different to the Shine On that was released by Fontana and made it to number 20 in the charts.

For a very brief moment in time just after The Smiths had demised, and before The Stone Roses took off.  The House of Love were the biggest and brightest hopes in the scene.
