Happy Mondays Step On to London

If you are of a certain age, then Happy Mondays will likely bring back memories to you. If you were lucky, you were part of the Madchester scene and got to see (through eyeballs the size of golf balls) the likes of them, the Roses, New Order etc, live. What a seminal era of music it was in the UK. Someone should make a film about it. Oh wait. However, if you were like me, you just listened to The Mondays on your walkman on the walk home from school in fucken boring old Eastbourne. Which was hardly the epicentre of cool.

Well, there’s good news for those who had it large the first time round or who missed out because they were 12-years-old and stuck in suburbia. If you’re in the UK, you’ve now got the chance to relive those hedonistic days/experience them for the first time because Shaun Ryder, Bez and the gang are returning to the London stage. Across two nights at the historic London Roundhouse, this illustrious band who helped spark that cultural movement will perform tracks from their back catalogue, like Step On, Kinky Afro, and Hallelujah.

Earlier this year Happy Mondays announced a return to the live stage, reuniting the full original line up for the first time in over 19 years. This led to two sold out nights at Brixton Academy and a further 3rd date added. The Roundhouse will give fans a chance to get up close to the band in the run up to Christmas.

Support comes from 808 State Soundsystem. For tickets and more info, go here. And Bez is Djing at the afterparty too. Shit is sure to get loose. More deets of the afterparty here.
