The inimitable Happy Mondays in session tonight. One of those bands whose influence help fuel the Madchester movement is the late 80s/early 90s, Happy Mondays fused Indie Pop with Funk and Northern Soul and came up with an infectious mixture which put them on the map from 1980 onwards.

Going through four band incarnations before reaching the present day, tonights session catches the Mondays in top form.

There are actually two sessions tonight – the first from April 6, 1986:

1. Kuff Dam

2. Freaky Dancin’

3. Olive Oil

4. Cob 20

And the second session from February 27, 1989:

5. Tart Tart

6. Mad Cyril

7. Do It Better

Together, classic Happy Mondays, and all for the John Peel Program.

Play loud – it’s Friday night and you can celebrate.
