Subject: Maisonettes - Heartache Avenue

Written By: whistledog on 01/08/07 at 3:06 am

The Maisonettes was a British project, started by singer Lol Mason, formerly of the 70s band City Boy (remember their 1978 hit "5705").  "Heartache Avenue" was released in 1982, and became a BIG hit, reaching #7 in the UK (December 1982) and #12 in Canada (July 1983).  Sadly, it didn't chart in America at all.  Their 1983 album "Maisonettes For Sale" produced several more singles, but they never got into the chart again

In 2005, it was sampled in the hip hop song "The Avenue" by Roll Deep
