About A House

A House, were known for the singles Endless Art and Here Come The Good Times. They also released five albums over theit decade long career. Founder and front man David Couse has recorded a solo album in 2003. He released andnother album in 2005 with a new baking band under the name Couse And The Impossible.

From David Couse's MySpace page:

A House formed in 1985 and it only took the release of two independent singles to convince the great Geoff Travis, of Rough Trade to sign them to his Blanco y Negro label. Their debut album, On Our Big Fat Merry Go Round was also released on Sire in the U.S. and the single Call Me Blue reached no. 3 in the Billboard College Charts in 1989 on the back of a U.S. tour with The Go-Betweens. Back home in Ireland and in the UK, A House went on to achieve great critical success with the release of their next four albums along with high-billing at festivals like Reading, Feile and Phoenix. Several sessions for John Peel's BBC Radio 1 show were recorded and the legendary man gave them great support and encouragement. After releasing their 5th album No More Apologies, A House bade fond farewell in simple style, in the company of all those who loved them at Dublin's Olympia Theatre in May 1997. All told, the story of A House is one of triumph, because survival for such a long time in the music industry must be seen to be just that. A retrospective anthology of A House, called The Way We Were appeared in 2002 on EMI / Setanta.
