Madchester crew the Happy Mondays are set for their first tour of Australia In over ten years. Legendary Frontman, Shaun Ryder commented on the originals plans for a musical reunion, “We are all older, no problems with each other. A lot of us hadn’t seen each other or been in the same room for 19 years. We’re now just a bunch of crazy old men, really. Nobody has really changed apart from the fact we are all older and just a little bit quieter. There are still the same characters, just a bit more grown up. Grown men with behaviour problems.”
They play the Palace Theatre in Melbourne on May 5th.
It’s been sixteen years since the dissolution of The Stone Roses and the cracks are already beginning to contentiously surface in the bands much hyped and anticipated European comeback tour. At their recent Dutch gig, the encore resulted in a disappearing drummer and Ian Brown labelling him a c**t, “the drummer’s gone home… I’m not joking, the drummer’s gone home. Get all your aggro out on me, I can take it.. What can I say, the drummer’s a c**t.”
Leaves you thinking back to why they must have broke up in the first place – still it wouldn’t be the same without a bit of controversy thrown into the cocktail. Wonder what the imminent Manchester gigs will bring to the tumultuous table of their second coming.
In the meantime watch the hilarious mockumentary below and see if you can spot the comedic cameos !
– Grace, Melbourne.
