(Madness - less nutty in 1983)
Continuing our trip through the 80's by way of great concerts. Tonight it's Madness from the Dominion Theater in London, 1982.
Although they've gone through a number of personnel changes over the years, it's nice to know the band is still together and performing. This concert, from 1982 is their middle period - easing out of the nuttiness and hard-paced ska they were known for in the late 1970's and turning in a more melodic direction with some deeper subtext by the 1980's.
Good band, always. Great band live. Enjoy the set.
