We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

For many people, ska is not an old music style, it's just a white reggae. That's a big error. In fact, ska is a black music much older than reggae, and at the origin of reggae ! Just because the 80s where to begin, a band of young white english people had to wish a ska revival. What a surprise in that punk era to ear some clean soft dancing songs, completely the contrary of what was punk. Madness was much a surprise as England hardly imported exotic music. The band were nearly the first to. At that time of 'no future' thoughts, Madness gave a lighter point of view to life and brang joy and happiness to any party. The most popular Madness stuff lives in their first 3 or 4 LPs. After that, they had progressively become a simple pop band and ska disappeared once again, until younger bands gave it another live with, O surprise, punk in it !
This is a panorama od Madness history. Hope you'll enjoy it and dance all night !
