Love The Avons! Had this and their mini-lp 'Music From Three Rivers Reach' for years and they still sound brilliant today: a sorely overlooked combo who should've been massive! A small correction for the main article, however: Baz & Mark were in The Farmer's Boys and not The Housemartins, I believe.
