  • After the much-publicized behind-the-scenes drama that has pursued the Manchester band the Happy Mondays, this rare 2004 performance at Barcelona's Razzmatazz Club displays a true return to form. The group was responsible for kick-starting the "Madchester" rave scene in the late 1980s, which is dramatized in Michael Winterbottom's film 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE. The Mondays were infamous as well for popularizing Ecstasy by handing it out at their shows, and the volatile lead singer, Shaun Ryder, was notorious for his ever-escalating drug habit. Success only amplified this lifestyle, sapping his creative strength even as the group climbed the charts, and leading to an abrupt dissolution in 1993. Ryder made a surprise comeback in the early '90s with his new project, Black Grape, and he even reformed the Mondays for a few extraordinary shows in 2004. Here Ryder demonstrates the charisma that defined a movement, and the song list includes material from both the Happy Mondays and Black Grape, including "Kinky Afro," "Reverend Black Grape," "Donovan," and "Wrote for Luck."
