Get hold of the Monday's cover of Stayin' Alive by the beegees....and 'the boys are back in town' are the best songs....also try the band Black Grape which Sean Ryder also fronts!!....(well.... did!) they will play a couple of them tracks too. I've seen them loads and they are mad live
happy mondays-bob's yer uncle
jesus and mary chain-come on
Ditto and if you really like the Mondays... and who can not but too, watch 24 HOUR pARTY pEOPLE. it has nothing to do with them really... but more the story behind the Manchester scene from the late 70's through the early 90's.
"I am just a watery Tart with a sword in her hand."
They came out of the whole Madchester scene. They were (and hopefully are) extremely entertaining. I've seen Black Grape play years ago and they were great. If Shaun Ryder is coherent, it's a good show.
