  • 33 1/3 Vol. 66: Madness' One Step Beyond...


This book is written as a kind of lateral-thinking Rock Family Tree, with One Step Beyond as the taproot. Since recording that album in 1979, Madness have experienced just about everything - an unrivaled run in the UK charts, critical accliam, commercial success with both singles and albums, sundry band members going AWOL, the obligatory covers album and extraordinary attendances at their reunion shows. Having grown up with One Step Beyond, from its release when he was working in a record shop, through recording on Two Tone with his band the Higsons, to working with Bedders, then finally touring with Madness and playing many of the songs from the album, Terry Edwards has written this affectionate and entertaining book as insider and outsider, fan, contemporary and fellow musician. The result puts everything in perspective, and is a unique social history of the national institution that is Madness.
