about

Formed in Milan in 1979 and active until 1983, The Mads became a true underground legend on the Italian Mod Scene - the recordings of that era remained unreleased until last year, when they were finally published in the UK by Well Suspect Records and in Italy by Area Pirata.

Reunited in 2012 with the original line-up they decided to continue in the same 60’s influenced direction but with a 70’s sound and an absolutely bang-up-to-date creativity.

“The Orange Plane” is The Mads’ first album and was preceded by two singles (both included) – the first, “What I Need” was chosen by Richard Searle for the “Generation Mod” compilation published in the UK by Well Suspect; the second, “On The Bus” was premiered by Gary Crowley at BBC Radio London.

The album includes 14 original compositions, each stylistically quite different: from the Power Pop of “The Orange Plane” to the Soul of “I Like It”; from the Brit Pop of “Freedom at Last” to the Freakbeat “Rainy Day”; from the Rhythm’n’Blues of “You’re A Liar” to the Hammond Stomp of “Do The Snake”; from the Space Rock of “Hold The Alien” to the Baroque textures of “(No My Baby) I’m Not Crazy”; from the Beat of “I Wanna Laugh You” up to the Brit Folk of “Annalisa”, they’re all coloured by intense and captivating vocal harmonies to bring you a unique and original sound.

A blend which hones the distinctive contributions of each band member, inspiring and influencing each other, to create, via a special alchemy, the unmistakable style of The Mads.
