Biography

There is more than one artist that goes by the name Madhouse:

1) Madhouse was the name of a post-punk band which lasted from 1983 to 1986, fronted by Monica Richards. In 1984, after recording and releasing Madhouse (their self-titled album) on FOY Records, they became a staple of the Washington, D.C., scene. They joined other dark 1980s punk bands, including Xmal Deutschland, tsol, and UK Decay, in the underground scene of the time.

2) Madhouse was a four-piece instrumental / band masterminded by Prince and consisting of his cohorts Eric Leeds, John Lewis, Levi Seacer Jr., and Matt Fink. In 1987, they released two albums: 8 and 16. All tracks were titled by their track number: e.g., One, Two, etc. Both albums carry eight tracks.

3) Madhouse was an early 1970s funk outfit led by Gary ‘Mudbone’ Cooper, who would later co-found Bootsy’s Rubber Band with legendary bassist Bootsy Collins. Madhouse churned out a mix of -infused funk, a la early Funkadelic, and spaced-out jammings. Their 1972 album, Serve ‘Em, a righteous anti-Richard Nixon treatise, is now highly collectible.
