The Happy Mondays were one of the most successful British bands of the late 80’s and 90’s, with their album releases and live performances at venues such as the legendary Hacienda in Manchester epitomising their status as one of the genre-defining acts of rave culture that was emerging at the time.

About Happy Mondays

The Happy Mondays were one of the most successful British bands from the late 1980’s and 1990’s. Discovered by the legendary Tony Wilson when performing at the famous Hacienda nightclub in Manchester, their debut album, Squirrel and G-Male Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out), was produced by renowned musician and record producer John Cale in 1987.  Their follow-up albums, Bummed (1988), and Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches (1990), went on to become two of the most genre-defining albums of the rave culture that emerged in the late 80’s and early 90’s in the UK.

The band has been through many incarnations throughout their career, and is available to hire now in their original line-up, consisting of Gary Whelen, Bez, Rowetta, Shaun Ryder, Paul Davis, Mark Day & Paul Ryder.

Since they reformed under this line-up, in 2012, the band has been touring extensively throughout the UK and Europe, and is set to release a new album of entirely new material in 2013. This will be their sixth studio album since the band formed in 1987.
