Happy Mondays – The Artist

Happy Mondays are an English rock band formed in Salford in 1980. The band’s original line-up was Shaun Ryder (vocals), his brother Paul Ryder (bass), Mark Day (guitar), Paul Davis (keyboard), and Gary Whelan (drums). Mark “Bez” Berry later joined the band onstage as a dancer/percussionist. Rowetta joined the band as a vocalist in 1990. The group’s work bridged the Manchester independent rock music of the 1980s and the emerging UK rave scene, drawing influence from funk, house, and psychedelia to pioneer the Madchester sound. They experienced their commercial peak with the releases Bummed (1988), Madchester Rave On (1989), and Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches (1990). They disbanded in 1993, and have reformed several times in subsequent decades.

Step On – The Song

‘Step On’  is a version of “He’s Gonna Step on You Again” by the Happy Mondays. The original song, “He’s Gonna Step on You Again” (also known as “Step On”) is a song performed by John Kongos, co-written by Kongos and Christos Demetriou, and first released in 1971 by Fly Records. It entered the UK Singles Chart on 22 May 1971 and spent 14 weeks on the chart, peaking at No. 4. Covers of the song have been chart successes several times, including this version for the Happy Mondays in 1990.

The Maracas – The Shape

This record is modelled into the silhouette of a pair of maracas. A maraca, sometimes called rumba shaker or chac-chac, is a rattle which appears in many genres of Caribbean and Latin music. It is classified as a percussion instrument. It is shaken by a handle and usually played as part of a pair. Modern maraca balls are also made of leather, wood or plastic.
