Hey you! Don’t buy that! Buy this! This is the heavy heavy monster sound of Madness’s classic epoch-making debut from 1979, which took the world by storm with its nutty slant on ska, Motown, rock’n’roll and good old fashioned music hall. It bothered the charts for more than a year, boasting three massive hit singles among its many charms. Now remastered with bonus tracks, videos, a John Peel session and liner notes by Irvine Welsh, it’s time once again to move your feet to the rockin’est, rock-steady beat…of Madness: One Step Beyond!




“Put it down to the sheer quality of the songwriting or even the fact that we were once more mired in economic gloom, but today One Step Beyond still rips from the speakers like all great debuts; with a delivery as sharp as the crease in a pair of tonic trousers.” – 4/5. Paul Moody, Q Magazine
