Formed in the late 1970s, Madness achieved immediate success with their debut album, One Step Beyond, which reached No.2 in the British album charts. Between 1980 and 1983 the band went on to score 13 UK top 10 singles including My Girl, Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love and House of Fun.
Firmly established as one of the UK's favourite acts and pioneers of the SKA movement, Madness have since released over 11 albums. In 2016 they launched their inaugural House of Common festival in Clapham, a one-day festival with a line-up full of SKA and reggae peformers, at which they headlined. House of Common returned for a second year in 2017.
