Madness - One Step Beyond
Well, a lot of things have come to light about this song. Suggs wasn't really in the band. As you probably suspected, the saxophone is a little bit out of tune. And that step they do, which would later become synonymous with their 'nutty boy' alter egos, was borrowed from Ian Dury & the Blockheads. But Prince Buster just died, another victim of the remorseless soul-eater that is 2016, and fuck it, it's Madness.
