Nothing quite compares to the six-piece, ska ensemble from London’s punk capital, Camden Town. Madness seamlessly swing from one iconic hook to the next captivating melody, the kick drum vigorously chasing the darting brass section across their trailblazing catalogue of hits.
Dawning from the age of the 2 Tone ska of the 70’s and early 80’s, Madness came out swinging with their 1979 album One Step Beyond. From there history was written with iconic hits such as 'Our House', 'Baggy Trousers’ and 'It Must Be Love', tallying 15 singles in the UK top ten including #1 hit ‘House of Fun’.
