Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Madness - Baggy Trousers

'Baggy Trousers' is a song by the English ska/pop band Madness from their 1980 album 'Absolutely'. It was written by lead singer Suggs and reminisces on school days. Mike Barson and Chris Forman also received writing credits (though Barson was credited in error, the correct McPherson/Foreman credit being used for subsequent releases). The band first began performing the song at live shows in April of 1980.

It was released as a single on September 5, 1980 and spent 20 weeks in UK charts, reaching a high of number 3. It was the 11th best-selling single of 1980 in the UK.

The music video of this song was shot in a school and park of Kentish Town. The band's Saxophone player, Lee Thompson decided he wanted to fly through the air for his solo, with the use of wires hanging from a crane. The resulting shot is one of the most popular of any Madness music videos. Thompson recreated the moment live at the band's reunion concert in 1992, Madstock, and during the band's 2007 Christmas tour.

The video was met with a great critical response from the public, and was particularly important as it now allowed television shows such as Top Of The Pops to show the band's music video, taking strain off the band. Following the release of "Baggy Trousers", the public began to anticipate future Madness music videos.
