Artist: Happy Mondays Album: Bummed Release Date: Nov 1988

Format: CD Deluxe Edition


Only a year after the intermittently thrilling Squirrel & G-Man, Happy Mondays snapped into focus on its sophomore album, 1988's Bummed.

An old cliche, but this puts so so many bands currently gracing the NME to shame. Performance (especially), Bring A Friend and Mad Cyril are incredible songs, Country Song and Lazyitis are equally hypnotic. 11/10.

    talfred, neck an "e" and that'll get you right in tune. also repeated viewings of the film "Performance" will help. it's the film much of the samples and song titles are nicked from. this lp is my "Parklife", yet much better. i'm one sepo who gets it.
