“An album of wit, warmth and sophistication, Keep Moving is Madness at their best.” – Phill Jupitus

 

 

Union Square Music’s 30th Anniversary Madness reissue campaign continues with Keep Moving, the band’s fifth – and possibly most mature – album.

Its release, in 1984, was tinged with sadness, as it would be the band’s last offering with the original line-up until 1999’s ‘Wonderful’ comeback. That said, the album and the songs on it did not suffer and some consider ‘Keep Moving’ to be Madness’s most sophisticated album, dealing with issues of homelessness, politics and spousal abuse in typically sensitive fashion.

The original album features the hit singles ‘Michael Caine’ (which few knew at the time to be about the plight of IRA informants) and the fantastically melancholy ‘One Better Day’. The bonus tracks include some of Madness’s best-loved songs: ‘Wings Of A Dove’ and ‘The Sun And The Rain’ proving that Madness, at this point in their career, were just as life-affirming as they ever were.
