Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Madness
Album:Total Madness:The Very Best Of Madness
Our House was probably the biggest hit from the British group Madness. They were part of the 80s ska revival. The group started in 1976 as The Invaders with Mike Barson, Chris Foreman & Lee Thompson. They added some members and changed the name of the group to Morris & The Minors. Then as a tribute to ska legend Prince Buster, they changed the group name to Madness. They signed with Stiff Records but in those days it typically it took some time to get released in North America. Geffen Records finally signed them and released the 1982 album The Rise And Fall. Our House was already a big hit in England and it did well here too. It was more mainstream than some of their earlier material. The decline of the group began when chief songwriter Mike Barson left the group in 1983. This comp doesn't cover most of their earlier material. I suggest The Ultimate Collection on Hip-O. Madness has reformed and released a new CD in 2005. Here's the video for Our House by Madness.
