Hey You! Don't Watch That...

Watch this! It's the new Madness video below.

Thirty years after the release of 'One Step Beyond', the band returns with, yes, a brand-new album, and it's vintage "Nutty Boys". 'The Liberty of Norton Folgate' has been out for a few weeks across the pond, and many reviewers, including those at MOJO and the Daily Mirror, say it's the band's best work. Pretty difficult to believe, I know. Suggs & Co. got Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley to produce just like the old days. So, that's a good start. You can purchase the results on iTunes (out this week), or you can wait until Aug. 18 to get the CD from Yep Roc. Pre-ordering it will get you two bonus tracks to boot. You can stream the entire record here. To get you in the mood, here is one of my favorites from the lads that goes back to 1980.
