One Step Beyond Madness sounds like something out of D.H. Lawrence, but that’s a mashup I’m still waiting to see. In fact, nothing could be further from what the name implies. Madness was all about good times, and this song, though it’s not much of an actual song in terms of, oh you know, lyrics and structure, is a classic. It really harks back to a different time, a time when slapdashery was a whole lot more acceptable, when a young band could establish themselves on the strength of silly zero budget videos, and if a rough demo accidentally became your first hit single that was cool too. Anyway, it was one hell of an introduction.
