Mad Not Mad

Mad Not Mad is the sixth studio album by Madness. Originally released in September 1985, it marked a departure from

the band’s original line-up, with keyboard player Mike Barson taking a break from the group after an astonishingly

successful run of five hit albums in as many years.

Style-wise Mad Not Mad presented a more polished side of Madness and contains some of their most sophisticated and

political song-writing. The first single, ‘Yesterday’s Men’ finds the band in a smooth, reflective mood, dealing with the

dispossessed characters in and around Camden Town, and ‘Sweetest Girl’ is a cover of the iconic Scritti Politti track,

while ‘Uncle Sam’ is a classic Madness romp relayed through the narrative of a soldier’s experiences during World War

II.

Within a few weeks of its initial release, NME listed ‘Mad Not Mad’ at number 55 on their list of the “100 Best Albums Of

All Time” and it remains in its 2015 list of the “50 Best Albums Released in 1985”.

This LP reissue is pressed on 180g black vinyl and features brand new liner notes by Chrissy Boy, Chas Smash, Woody

and Lee Thompson.
