Details

[Edit]

The Happy Mondays became the Happy Mondays with their second album, Bummed. The band found the right producer in Martin Hannett, the Macunian madman who helmed all the early albums by Joy Division and New Order. Hannett’s echoing, droning production style underscored the Monday’s deranged visions. By this time the Mondays had discovered their singular inner rhythm, and while each song here is distinctive, it's possible to experience the album as one continual, churning groove, each song bled together in the way the hours of a long night out bleed together. The meandering, cacophonous opener, “Country Song” signals the band’s distaste for all convention. (In a strange way, it does sound like a country song — or at least what country music must have sounded like to rave kids in Manchester.) On the other side of the tunnel is “Lazyitis,” a sweet and dizzy jangler that cribs the melody from “Day Tripper,” and offers a mission statement from Shaun Ryder: “I'm doing time with weirdo kind / Hustlin’ and rustlin’ and watchin’ from behind.”
