Seven lads out of North London sprang onto the music scene in 1978 with a brand of music dubbed the ‘Nutty sound’. They were called Madness and, in the mid-eighties, became the best-loved British band since The Beatles. Between 1979 and 1986 they had 21 top 20 hits, and released their first studio album in 14 years, called ‘Wonderful’, in 1999. Madness signed to Stiff Records in 1979 and released their debut album ‘One Step Beyond’, followed by their second ‘Absolutely’. The albums ‘Seven’, ‘The Rise and Fall’ and ‘House of Fun’ gave them their first number one single in Britain and, with ‘Our House’, their first top 10 in America. Although often seen as a slap-stick humorous band, some of their eighties tracks (‘Embarrassment’, ‘Grey Day’) reflected the recession and general gloom and doom that was apparent at the time in the UK. www.blog.madness.co.uk/
