Madness: Hurrah, New York NY
Richard Grabel, NME, 22 December 1979
THERE'S NO tradition of ska being popular in America. Millie Small and Desmond Dekker each had one novelty hit a piece, and that's it. But Madness have enough of the classic R&B crunch in their sound to make an American audience feel at home.
