Housemartins - Summer guests

Housemartins band name inspiration - Delichon_urbicum_-Iceland_-flying-8The back cover of their legendary album London 0 Hull 4 summarizes the orientation of many of the songs written by these indie rockers from Hull: 'Take Jesus - Take Marx - Take Hope'.

A house martin (Latin name: Delichon urbicum) is a bird like a swallow.

There is not much more to tell about it here, other than that it often occurs in family crests; usually the presence of our little feathered friend indicates a coat of arms of the fourth son of a nobleman.

Active: 1983-1988, GBR
