MADNESS “MAD NOT MAD” – (black vinyl)

RELEASE DATE : Friday, June 24th 2022

Mad Not Mad is the sixth studio album from Madness. Originally released in September 1985 on Virgin Records it was the first release on their sub-label Zarjazz. Recorded at Westside Studios and Airside Studios in London, it was their first album without keyboard player Mike Barson (who temporarily left the band after 1984’s Keep Moving) and their last outing as Madness until 1992’s Madstock event.  A highly sophisticated record, Mad Not Mad’s most notable singles – ‘Uncle Sam’ and ‘Yesterday’s Men’ – perfectly encapsulate the band’s capacity for both bombast and melancholy. The album was certified silver by the BPI and was ranked number 5 in NME’s list of ’50 Albums Released in 1985 That Still Sound Great Today’.

This new reissue features exclusive liner notes containing in-depth interviews with band members Lee ‘Kix’ Thompson, Chrissyboy Foreman and Woody Woodgate about their memories of making the record, and an exclusive poem by Cathal Smyth (‘Chas Smash’).
