Happy Mondays Plan Festive Homecoming

[b]Happy Mondays[/b] have announced details of a Christmas homecoming show at [b]Manchester Central[/b].

The Manchester legends will be joined by [b]The Twang, The Sunshine Underground[/b] and special guest DJ [b]Clint Boon[/b] at the festive show on [b]December 14[/b].

Speaking about the show, frontman [b]Shaun Ryder[/b] declared: "It's going to be one of the gigs of the year, even better than when we sold out Manchester MEN Arena in 2005.

Manchester Central is the new name for the G-Mex and Ryder fondly remembers the show they played there previously. He said: "Everyone remembers our last shows at Manchester G-Mex (in 1990, at the height of their stardom) but I reckon we'll top that with this one - it's just going to be one pure, big Mancunian Christmas party."

Tickets go on sale this Friday (September 14) at 9am.

The band are also on tour again later this month - taking their new acclaimed new album 'Uncle Dysfunktional' around the UK.

The 43rd Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Very taken with Africa Express' version of "In C", by Terry Riley, this week. I have a few takes on the piece (50 years old this month, incidentally), the latest being one by Portishead's Adrian Utley from a couple of years back, though I still probably default to what I think is the original...
