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.

4. Cob 20
And the second session from February 27, 1989:

Together, classic Happy Mondays, and all for the John Peel Program.
Play loud – it’s Friday night and you can celebrate.
