Madness - The Return Of The Los Palmas 7.

If there was any light to come from this dark year musically, it came in the form of Madness.

Another single I managed to acquire.
I loved this track and the video. I also loved the cover of the single which used to crack me up. It just summed up the Nutty Boys for me.

A few years later I got the album ‘Complete Madness’ which had the lyrics to all the songs in the gatefold. It made me laugh that under the lyrics for ‘The Return Of The Los Palmas 7’ it just had “waiter?”.

Fantastic music from a fantastic group.

'Waiter' Enough said. Pure genius.

That's all it takes.


This is the first record I ever bought, purchased from  Woolworths in January 1981 around my 10th Birthday.

@Chris Thomas Good words!

@Green Porsche Me too, first ever record purchased. I think I was 10 also. Weird eh, the perfect song for the discerning 10 year old Ska fan :)

Same here, from the Woolies in Greenford Broadway!

One of my first singles too. Was B side to Grey Day. Bought in Dublin '81. I was 10 that year too.


If only I'd known then what a golden age of music I was living through.


Wouldn't it be great to get everyone who appeared in this video back together for a photograph at the very same cafe in London! And just see how everyone's changed.   (well I'd think it'd be great, anyway)

We did actually have a reunion in October 2005 but it was more of a piss up.
