The Maisonettes

The Maisonettes was a one-hit band from England whose single, "Heartache Avenue", reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart in 1982. The song was later sampled by UK rap group Roll Deep, for the chorus on their UK Top 40 hit, "The Avenue". The Maisonettes' oddness lay not so much in their hit as their combination of maverick indie record label beginnings with a semi-manufactured image that some indie purists might find crass. Their hit, "Heartache Avenue," entered the UK chart in late 1982 and rose all the way up to number seven. Read more on Last.fm
