Smyth: Sure. I think maybe that reflects the mood of a nation or a culture or the globe — who knows? That sort of collective expression, like punk. I think in times of conservatism, you can take risks — when everything is comfortable. When things are uncomfortable, you want less risk. You want to be comforted, not challenged, when times are tough. Smyth: The cover of the album is all the alternative suggested titles crossed out.
So it sort of shows the complexity of trying to come to a decision in a band. Did you ever hear anything back from her?
Smyth: She got married — she has a kid with a guy, but I think the thing is this, right? You come out of a relationship for a helluva long time [separating from his wife after 27 years], and you play the field a little bit. Then you meet someone, and you fall head over heels.

This week MIS co-editor, Rob Hazelby goes back 5 years to issue number , and the week of Sunday 25th November to Saturday 1st December , and then back 10 years to issue number and the week of Sunday 24th November to Saturday 23rd November This issue got off to an exciting start, with the news that Madness had just been booked to play the Snowbombing Festival, which was due to run from the 31st of March to the 6th of April.

In the interview the great man talked scooters, Madness, and what us fans could expect in the future. Video news now, and according to Chris the video for the NW5 single would simply be footage taken from compilations and live shows. Fans were quite vocal in their disappointment, with one Vince Carden declaring;. It was over to The News of The World next, as we featuring a full transcription of an interview the paper had recently conducted with Suggs. Here, he talked about manufactured pop bands currently wowing the public on X Factor.
Next, we passed the baton over to Duff Kelly and The Sun newspaper, where the two sources covered an in-depth lowdown on the recent Prince Buster gig on the 23rd November in Croydon, complete with YouTube clips.
We brought this issue to a close by mentioning the MIS calendar, which registered MIS web site users could log in to and edit, by adding any Madness dates they felt would interested other visitors. If so, the Madness Trading Ring had an idea. Simply list the items you were trying to sell non bootleg, of course! Naturally, the obligatory pre and post gig booze session would almost certainly be on the cards.
Elsewhere this week the One Step Behind web site received a revamp, with a batch of photo uploads. Here we finished off the November tour, by looking at the string of gigs held from the 8th to the 24th of November.
The duckers, divers and borstal-bound rude boys of Madness grew into pop maestros with an infallible common touch. He means the roof of Buckingham Palace. How to follow that?

Hit that one. Through every subsequent upheaval and flatlining doldrum he remained steadfast, until ; when Madness succumbed to recording a covers album, The Dangermen Sessions Vol.
However, a visit to a …Norton Folgate session drew back. Affectionately, of course. Lee calls me Victor Meldrew. He says, Who are you? I say Baggy Trousers! In Madness, everything connects. Criminals at 12, they thieved and burgled until dispatched to separate reform schools in Townsend never changed and died in poverty, with Thompson one of three mourners at the funeral.
