Heartache Avenue...




Very little info about The Maisonettes other than the fact that it is an English group formed in 1982 in Birmingham by Lol Mason and Mark Tibenham.


Group which will remain mainly in the musical history of the Eighties for the title "Heartache avenue" released in 1982. Single which will know a significant success at the planetary level that year there.


As such alone, he deserved this article.


To discover or rediscover.

1982 ... a single title, THIS title, was enough to bring the group One Shot back into the musical legend of the 80s. The group achieved the feat of delivering a unique title where old and new sounds mingle perfectly, a particularly daring bet. In any case, it is perfectly successful. MAS-TER-FUL !



1983 ... and still that neo-vintage style that really sets them apart from the rest of the competition. A bias that pays off, as we saw on the enormous previous title. Unfortunately, this will not always be the case ...



1983 ... a truly indefinable band, just like their style. What is certain is that the quality is omnipresent and that is the main thing !



1983 ... admittedly, they will have familiarized with the stars only once but the whole of their work proves that they largely had their place in the big leagues



1983 ... a group whose existence will prove to be more than ephemeral. Too bad because their talent was obvious and they really deserved to go even further in the adventure ...
