      First of all, I want to say I am glad to finally have find out what
      part of the UK "A HOUSE" is from, and that I am ecstatic to have
      found this group and to know that I am really not the only fan.
      Secondly, WHY ARE THEIR ALBUMS NOT AVAILABLE AT ANY MUSIC STORES?
      Thirdly, I am looking to find out how to buy the original albums on
      cd, I only see the new ones. I want to collect all the cds. I love
      the early ones, and have not even heard the new ones. I am shocked
      and excited to even know the band is still together! YAY!

      Hello Leslie, welcome to the mailing list. This is a rather quiet list which becomes lively on occasion and stays dormant in between. Just the way I like it.

        Hello Leslie,
        welcome to the mailing list. This is a rather quiet list which becomes
        lively on occasion and stays dormant in between. Just the way I like it.
        For your information we have been sharing views and info on aHouse since
        ninety-eight, I think it is. That is about one year after - I have to
        disappoint you - aHouse disbanded. Their farewell gig was at the Olympia,
        Dublin in February 1997 after five LPs. All of the albums have their
        merits, I personally think the middle one "I am the Greatest" is their
        peak, a generous splurge of creativity and rage. Other views abound on
        this list. Beats me :-)

        Your second question has been one of my burning ones. Officially it seems
        like this band doesn´t exist. Few reference books or website include
        aHouse. Nobody seems to know about them. That is one of the reason this
        list exists, to keep the flame alive even if only electronically.

        If you want to buy the cds then you can find suggestions on our home-page
        "www.zop.ca". I found ebay very useful myself. There you seem to be able
        to find almost anything they have ever released. I bought their second and
        fourth albums last week for four pounds total! (plus approx. five quid
        shipping and handling). I have never been able to see their first album on
        the CD format though. I have it as an LP but the thing is I tend to listen
        to it less often to the point of neglecting it even. I want all of them to
        be equally accessible. Does anybody on the list know by the way if the
        first album has been released as a CD at all? If not would someone be
        willing to burn a decent version of it?

        anyway,
        enjoy being here,

        Steini

            In the website you will be able to buy the A House Greatest Hits Album called The Way We Were.  Also, you can buy Dave Couse's new solo album which is brilliant.

              then on CD. I wouldn't have a problem burning a copy for whoever wants
              it as it's long out of print.

              Let me know.

                That's correct, I have the original On Our Big Fat Merry-Go-Round
                album on CD. I remember the World Famous KROQ in Southern
                CAlifornia, playing "Call Me Blue" for a short while! Hence what
                perked my interest in checking out the band back around 1991 or 1993
                I think. That CD is one of my favorite! I think "I Am the Greatest"
                came out around 1993. I remember it was only released as an import
                and not domestically when I tried to get it. And then a year or two
                later they released it domestically in the USA. Differant covers but
                everything else is the same if I'm not mistaken. Anyway back to the
                Merryground album. I've put it to good use and now there are a few
                scatches so the first song on the album skips. I've been looking for
                a replacement cd for quite awhile now and checking morpheus and Kazaa
                and the others but never finding anything other than Call Me Blue off
                that album. In fact I've just put a song off that first album in
                heavy rotation on my radio show. A HOUSE - "That's Not The Truth" --
                "Some Stupid Poxy Journalist Is Sitting On My Shoulder"

                :You can check out my webpage, newsletter, radio show and more at
                http://www.nervous-in-suburbia.moonfruit.com/
                I have yet to hear Dave Couse's album though........I'm sure it's
                great.....I love all the A House stuff so far. You can usually find
                all the later albums in cut out bins at used cd stores.....all the
                time.......I find them constantly. But I never do seem to find the
                first one.........must be a rarity or very well liked by the original
                owners! :)

                SLATER!!!!

                  I have never been able to see their first album on
                  the CD format though.  I have it as an LP but the thing is I tend to listen
