So, with the recent Happy Mondays reunion and long-awaited new LP "Uncle Dysfunktional" release, it was to hope some inspired label would dare have a look back at the past releases of that seminal band who inspired so many other bands up to this day. "Bummed" (1988) and its more polished sequel "Pills'N'Thills'N'Bellyaches" (1990) are arguably the Mondays' best records (and for the latter, their most successful), so it's quite logically the first two to be reissued in the wake of their new found fame.

I chose to review "Bummed" not only because it's my favourite of the two, but also 'cause I deeply think it's still unique in its own kind 20 years after its original release. Two things make it a landmark record in British music in my opinion; first, Martin Hannett's spacier-than-ever take on effects and overall sonic architecture, and second and not least, guitarist Mark Day's acid pickings through most of the tracks featured here, which provided the obvious Mondays' legacy over the sound that was to come so popular two years later with that whole "Madchester" scene. Not to mention, of course, Shaun Ryder's mumbled yet hypnotic nonsense lyrical garbage over a tight rythm section sounding like headless chicken on a roll.

From the acid psychedelia opener "Country Song" to the harder robotic single "Wrote For Luck", from the trippy disco-pop of "Brain Dead" to the frantic assault of "Do It Better", the whole album is built like a rollercoaster designed to burn your mind and body on the floor (and dance yourself down to your knees, as would say Morrissey).

With massive irony , considering the bands propensity for getting slaughtered whether it be via drink or as is more likely drugs Bummed was recorded at The Slaughterhouse in Great Driffield ,East Yorkshire. Bummed , released in 1988, came out prior to the outbreak of the "Madchester" rave scene but if anything sums up the vibe of the whole thing its this album.It has a swaggering devil may care hedonistic verve but one filtered through the working class estates of Manchester's suburbs rather any glitzy showbiz ephemera.
That the relatively vibrant tones was,nt necessarily matched by the lyrical themes- dealing with drug addiction , crime, and a song originally titled "Some C*** From Preston"-later changed to the "Country Song" is no great surprise considering then bands background .But the furiously funked up grooves and sheer danceable rhythms were .That said Sean Ryders lyrics-frequently described as street poetry - are an inspired mash-up of dextrous phraseology and converse imagery and are often very funny at that.
Happy Mondays at that time were memorably described as P.I.L. meets Parliament which as good a way to describe them as any though Joy Division on Prozac melding Can and Chic is another. What ever way you want to describe this music the bands unique council estate fusion of funk and rock allied to producers Martin Hannett,s astute production( The use of echo and reverb on the drums is especially distinctive) make Bummed a stand alone album in terms of sound .
What really makes Bummed essential though are the songs. Moving on from the rather chaotic bent of their debut album "Squirrel G Man" these were songs with tangible melodies , straight to the hips rhythms and with the odd song -sheer infectious pop sensibilities.
