Lets start 2011 with some Madness, as the reality of the year ahead ain't necessarily gonna be so much fun if the doom and gloom from our illustrious politicians (here in the UK) is anything to go by.
This is a wonderful concert recording from the Pinkpop festival held at Landgraaf, The Netherlands, this actual performance was on 31st May 2009, and broadcast on FM.
The then new album, entitled The Liberty of Norton Folgate was released just a week or so earlier, on 18th May 2009. It charted at Number 5 in the UK album charts. The band went on to play various festivals, including Pinkpop and Glastonbury. On 27th September 2009, the band also played a free concert on a closed-off Regent Street in association with Absolute Radio.
The band have continued to both record new material and tour in recent times, and a new album is due later on this year, which following the critical acclaim of the last one and the sheer pleasure of listening or seeing them live, gives many of us something very positive to look forward to.
