PAUL Heaton & Jac­qui Ab­bott ( right) and their band will per­form Paul’s re­cently re­leased ca­reer-span­ning col­lec­tion The Last King Of Pop at The Sum­mer Se­ries in Trin­ity Col­lege on Fri­day, July 5.

The al­bum fea­tures the best of The House­martins, The Beau­ti­ful South and Paul Heaton & Jac­qui Ab­bott. One of the UK’s most gifted song­writ­ers, Heaton was pro­lific and this show in­cludes 25 of the finest songs from his ex­tra­or­di­nary mu­sic ca­reer.

Paul first came to pub­lic at­ten­tion in the early ’80s as front­man of The House­martins, a group that in­cluded Nor­man ‘Fat­boy Slim’ Cook.

In 1988, Heaton formed The Beau­ti­ful South, and later re­leased sev­eral solo al­bums, plus three top-five al­bums with Ab­bott.

Heaton says he made more money than he could ever spend and has al­ways been un­com­fort­able with his wealth. To­day, he lives in an unim­pos­ing semi in Manch­ester with his wife and three daugh­ters.
