Madness

Garry Bushell, Dance Craze, 1981

I WAS STUCK on a five hour train journey from Glasgow to London in the summer of '79 with no buffet and with only the company of ex-Pistol Paul Cook to keep me from crawling up a wall, and unless my memory deceives me he spent half the ride rabbiting on about this band called Madness who came from Camden Town and who were apparently a good laugh and well worth the effort of seeing.

Total word count of piece: 1007
