Holy Shit!





There's a new Madness album out....their first one in like 15 years... It's like running into that fun friend you knew in high school. The guy that who'd say "Ooomba-dooma-dooma" for no reason.

I am one of the weirdo freaks who put Madness in my top 10 bands of all time (like Gwen Stefani)

The other blogger on this site was bred in the redneck coven known as Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Until recently he had never even heard of Madness... but he loves the Greg Allman band... Which is great... kinda of like the Grateful Dead with more of a cheap whisky type odor... rather than just your standard "I'm self important and frying" odor.

Madness rocks, I just got their box set...Sure it's not Coltrane or Black Flag... but damn if it dont make you feel happy. I will buy it the first chance I get.

It's called "The Dangerman: Volume 1"

They have enough songs to create a box set?

what kind of music is it ?

Beleive it or not they did like 12 Albums between 1979 and 1987. Then are a ton of B_Sides that were never released in the US. There is 100 or so tracks in the box set.

They music is dance hall ska goofiness. Wailing sax, hammered piano.

I meant GOOD songs. I know of 2. Is that all there is on the box set?

Hell no!

The two songs that scored big on the US Charts were the inocuous "Our House" and overly cutesy "It Must Be Love" (now a Levi's commercial) represent the absolute lowest mark in their recording career...

You need to hear the classics such as "Night Boat to Cairo," "Bed and Breakfast Man" and "Yesterday's Men"

All the more reason for a box set...

I think I might, just might, pick up "One Step Beyond". A box set is a bit much however.
