Madness are too effing lovely. I love them so much it makes me frustrated. I recently bought myself The Rise and Fall and finally gave it a listen and– DUH– it’s a perfect, priceless BEAUTY. Here’s a whopping injustice: it was never released in the United States. Because it’s too English, probably. Marketing! Pfft! Nice try America, you philistine, but I’ve got e-commerce now. Ha-HA.

Anyway, my borderline deranged obsession with this sublimely talented group has resurfaced AND I OFFER NO APOLOGIES!!! Also, holy cow, they were young in their heyday. So young and so skilled. They were little, tiny babies! And I am an elderly woman. Oh well. NUTTY BOYS FOREVER!!!

“Well some men seek answers in bottles.
And others in degenerate ways.
But I don’t care much for the question.
Madness is all in the mind.”
