“It takes something to be the unpredictable one in a group called Madness!” – Phill Jupitus, April 2018.

As the saxophone player and a founding member of Madness, Lee Thompson’s life has been as exciting, zany and just plain crackers as his new film, One Man’s Madness. OMM is a “mocku-rocku-documentary” about Lee’s time before and during the band’s career, which is still going strong after nearly 40 years. The film features cameos by his bandmates and some very special appearances by their mothers and fathers, and even Lee’s sister and his wife. These are talking heads with a difference though; nobody is spared the Lee Thompson treatment as he assumes the identities of characters from the Madness story, including Dave Robinson (founder of Stiff Records) alongside the band’s manager, accountant and lawyer. One Man’s Madness  is by turns funny, outrageous and poignant, but most of all it exposes Lee as the beating heart of Madness – an unpredictable genius, fantastic performer and inspirational songwriter.

This accompanying 2CD soundtrack album features music from the film, including hits by Madness, as it charts the band’s journey. Also included is Ian Dury’s ‘England’s Glory’, tracks from Lee’s side projects Crunch! (with Madness guitarist, Chrissy Boy) and The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra, alongside Lee’s previously unreleased version of Prince Buster’s ‘Sit Down And Wonder’. The album is also peppered with dialogue quotes and operatic intros to some of the most famous Madness songs.
