Smoke Break: Happy Mondays, "Step On"

Glad it's Friday. Time to decamp for the weekend and take a retro spin back 20 years ago to 1990/91. This song and disc, "Pills 'n' Thrills & Bellyaches," was huge in the clubs at the time (not that I would know or anything). Songs like "Bob's Yer Uncle," "Grandbag's Funeral" and "Kinky Afro" were illustrative of the Manchester sound, and made the Happy Mondays a huge band for all of about a year or so before disappearing into obscurity.

Good times. You're twistin' my melon, man.
