The warm, mellifluous voice of Paul Heaton often masked the jagged satirical content of his lyrics. From pointed political jabs like "The People Who Grinned Themselves to Death" to darkly comical love stories such as "Something That You Said," Heaton's work with the Housemartins and the Beautiful South had listeners humming along to his biting wit. While Fat Chance technically marked his solo debut in 2001 (under the name Biscuit Boy aka Crackerman), 2008's The Cross Eyed Rambler was billed as a genuine Heaton release. Two years later, Heaton returned with Acid Country. After other projects, Heaton saw a resurgence in popularity by reuniting with the Beautiful South's Jacqui Abbott for 2014's What Have We Become? The duo followed up with 2015's Wisdom, Laughter and Lines. ~ Michael Sutton
