It’s got to be hot and fun if its Jamaican. And this album is no exception. In the spring of 2011 Lee Thompson and Mark Bedford decided to pay homage to their roots.
The two founders of Madness wanted to have fun and record some music which would cheer you up on the most miserable winter’s day.
Welcome to The Benevolence of Sister Mary Ignatius! Its name is intriguing enough, but the music is even better!
Heralding summer even in the depths of winter, it is a soothing, sun dappled balm to the ears, a dance inducing treat and an escape from the everyday cares and worries of the modern world. What could be better?
• The band play at Band on the Wall in Manchester on May 24th.
