Details of Happy Mondays and the Ticket Luck value
Happy Mondays are perhaps the most influential of the Northern England rock bands. The band came to mainstream music with the idea of doing some rapid transition from the happening pop scene prevalent in the eighties. They incorporated elements of club-dance music as well as the rave culture of the late eighties and nineties. Their club-influenced stance was accepted readily by the hyped youth. In no time the Happy Mondays became an integral part of mainstream music of the nineties. Happy Mondaystickets are the hottest concert buy this season. Obtain them at the earliest and enjoy the show!
Happy Mondays were contemporaries of The Stone Roses but their image and style were quite different. Roses’ music was rooted in 1960s pop/rock, having just a tint of dance music, Happy Mondays wholeheartedly embraced the dance club and rave sub-cultures. The band’s music was an expression of frustration, anger and at times the group sounded and acted like street thugs. In sharp contrast to their contemporaries talked more about music as a message of peace and love. But the striking deviation was what the youth loved about the Mondays and the band took off to become a successful band of its time.
Like most creative and unconventional bands, Happy Mondays lyrics were often aggressive and surrealistic, had references to drug culture, sexuality and popular culture of the time . The music was an expression of protest in the financially stagnant UK economy of the time, and the resulting gang and drug culture in Northern England. No wonder Happy Mondays would eventually become the poster-children of that drug-fueled era.
Happy Mondays was originally formed in the early eighties and the backbone of the line-up at that time, were two talented brothers, Shaun and Paul Ryder. Shaun was the lead vocalist and Paul Ryder handled the bass. The lead guitars were the responsibility of the enigmatic Mark Day and keyboardist Paul Davis, and the drummer Gary Whelan completed the lineup. For a time Mark Berry joined the band as a dancer and percussionist and Rowetta Satchell was the secondary vocalist in the early nineties. More importantly the lineup did not change much at all during the band’s first decade allowing them to grow and evolve their musical style.
Happy Mondays became analogous to fused progressive rock/pop. This amalgam comprised of heavy guitar work with strong rhythms of contemporary club house music and elements of funk. Over the years their songs were remixed by DJs, all over Europe and beyond. They dressed like part hippies and part glam rockers, and that complimented their music well which was intense and colorful. Nonetheless the bands never seemed to follow established norms of cohesive and structured songs. Not surprisingly, they influenced dozens of bands to come out of Northern England since the nineties, a testament to their influential legacy. Their fans include such varied acts like the Chemical Brothers and Oasis.
The success story of the band began when producer/promoter Tony Wilson discovered the Mondays in band contest in a local nightclub. He decided on promoting them and helped in releasing their first album, Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four… in 1987. Their second album, Bummed (1988) made Happy Mondays certified UK superstars. This claim to fame leads the Ryder brothers all the way to become hot music celebrities of the time. Both especially caught the fan’s imaginations and were followed loosely by the youth as icons of pop/rock and the emerging youth culture.
The follow-up album Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches was released in 1990, as was represented the climax of the bands creative genius and popularity. The album sold extremely well in the UK and went platinum. Moreover it made it into the Top 100 albums chart in the US. Singles Kinky Afro and Step On from the album ended up in the top five of the UK singles chart.
Happy Mondays became a band that landed on the global scene as an extremely creative band. Perhaps the most influential to come from UK in that decade, the Mondays remained a top notch pop/rock act. Their third album Yes Please! was released in 1992 and was the last significant effort from the band to meet commercial success. Happy Mondays were an immensely influential part of the Manchester music scene.
The band faded in the late nineties after a drug episode tore them apart. They reunited in the mid 2000s and largely play live concerts. These concerts are a treat for all Monday fans.
