The House of Love are an English alternative rock band, formed in London in 1986. The band rose to prominence in the UK as a leading indie rock band in 1988 and split up in 1993, eventually reforming a decade later in 2003. The House of Love is best known for its detailed psychedelic guitar sound and for the successful singles "Shine On", "Christine" and "Destroy the Heart". The best-known members of the House of Love are singer-songwriter and guitarist Guy Chadwick, and lead guitarist Terry Bickers, who were the creative core of the original band until an acrimonious split in 1989 and who reformed the band together in 2003.
