Before We Was We by Madness
A story of seven originals, who, through sheer determination, hard graft and talent, made their way from the smoke-stained, underbelly of London’s basement bars to the Top of the Pops stage. At their peak during the late 70s and early 80s, the British ska band’s legacy has never waned. The audiobook of Before We Was We sees the band tell their stories, in their own – gloriously fun – words. It’s a nostalgic affair, packed with memories, anecdotes and laugh-out-loud quips from the boys as they recall their formative years, full of follies and the expected antics. The rehearsal music between the chapters is a real bonus, whether you were there first time round or want to discover their back story for the first time.
