The band featured in this 1986-1988 retrospective, the House of Love in many ways embodied Creation guru Alan McGee's wild-honey visions of perfect indie pop more consummately than more famous protégés like Oasis and Primal Scream. Led by singer/songwriter Guy Chadwick, who with his floppy fringe, high cheekbones and intense, borderline-psychotic stare cut the quintessential broody indie romantic figure, the House of Love slow-burned themselves onto the collective pop consciousness in the late-80s before an unhappy switch to Phonogram became their undoing. Songs like "Christine" and "Shine On" impact instantaneously, classics from the get-go, working within the confines of four-minute perfect pop yet bristling at every pore with longing, rage, frustration, rapture and regret. Guy Chadwick's morbid turns of phrase are the making of "Man to Child" and "Loneliness is a Gun" but great credit must go to guitarist Terry Bickers, later to form Levitation, whose prismatic, psychedelic guitar stylings colour in and flesh out songs such as "Destroy the Heart", brilliantly externalising their inner drama. --David Stubbs
