Much of the music press this week have been praising the return of the Happy Mondays on the soundtrack to the Goal football film. Playground superstar features all the usual Monday’s traits: Shaun Ryder being a working-class Alan Ginsberg on vocals with a shambolic sounding backing just about holding together behind him (with a bit more skill than they used to have).
As with the old Mondays’ material the treat is in the remix. In this case the Redanka 4-4-2 mix is the one worth having.
Now for for the complaint – there is NO 12″ vinyl. Noel Gallagher’s Big Brother records needs to pull their finger out.
