Jumping back into our Ska Revival this week with another of the Two-Tone Immortals, Madness.
You probably could have labeled this band Ska-lite, as they shied away from the heavier social/racial aspects of the Reggae/Ska movement in favor of more upbeat off-the-wall humor with their songs and performances.
Still, a great band who won enormous popularity over here as well as the rest of the world in the late 1970's through early 80's.
Tonight it's a session they recorded at The BBC for The John Peel Program(me) on August 14, 1979.
Here's what they do:
1. The Prince
2. Bed & Breakfast Man
3. Stepping Into Line
In answer to your requests. BTW - working on some live Bad Manners for tomorrow, but may have to just rely on an lp instead.
