There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

We must apologise to Chimpton because she has been asking for some Happy Mondays for a while and we said we had already featured our favourite of theirs; “Kinky Afro”. It seems we were mistaken, so here it comes.

Happy Mondays are band from Salford who were formed as part as the Madchester scene in the 1980s. The band’s line-up featured Shaun Ryder on vocals, his brother Paul Ryder on bass, Mark Day on guitar, Paul Davis on keyboards, Gary Whelan on drums and Mark “Bez” Berry on E’s or anything else he could get his hands on. Rowetta also joined the band as a vocalist in 1990.

The group’s work bridged the Manchester independent rock music of the 1980s and the emerging UK rave scene, drawing influence from funk, house, and psychedelia to pioneer the Madchester sound. They experienced their commercial peak with the releases Bummed (1988), Madchester Rave On (1989), and Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches (1990), with the last going platinum in the UK. They disbanded in 1993, and have reformed several times in subsequent decades.

“Kinky Afro” is a single produced by Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne and taken from their third album Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches. The song’s chorus paraphrases the Labelle song “Lady Marmalade”. The song was the band’s biggest hit in the United States, reaching number one on the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. It reached number five in the United Kingdom, tied with “Step On” as the band’s highest-charting single here.

Don’t forget, if you have any music videos you would like us to feature in the future, drop us a line. We are always happy to listen to requests from others, we cannot promise to feature any but we will try our best to find the videos if we think others will enjoy.

  5. “Life must be a tricky thing for the superstitious. At dinner I happened to say that I had never been in danger of drowning. I was ordered to touch wood. I tapped the table two or three times… and now I suppose I am immune. I should like to know whom I have appeased.”

  6. I hoped that Dorothy Dumpling would join our morning walk but she must have forgotten about it. We had just got back to the veranda when she turned up. Barbs and I love our walks but DD rarely comes. It might not be wise to mention that exercise would be good for her, would it?

  7. Rolf report 11 Jan

    My campus mom, Dr Claudia, photographs me during my slumbers. She loves the shine of my coat, the cuteness of my little bean feet & the perkiness of my ears. There’s a special beauty to black cats. We have different features but all black cats have it.

  8. Good morning headteacher, I came in nice and early to warm your chair for you. It’s all part of the Cilla Service, you can have it back in a couple of hours.

  9. Yesterday my eyes were violated by receiving two unsolicited dick pics. One that looked like a half chewed Sui Mai and another that looked like a herpes infected torpedo. I’ve had better days and I shall be remaining single for the foreseeable future. Thank you.

  10. I have to say how fantastic it was to link up with Ken Scott again after so many years. He filled in so many fun gaps that I had completely forgotten about. Thanks Ken.

  11. Former Test and Trace director named as new Royal Mail boss. There goes one’s chances of ever tracking down the case of gin that never arrived before Christmas.

  12. In an effort to tackle the rising infection rates we have moved Newcastle to Carlisle, Bristol and Birmingham are now in Wales, Manchester is a small island in the Irish Sea and Surrey is a city near Reading.

  13. 2020 sucked. No doubt about it. But there was one good bit waaaay back in Jan. Remember the Vegan Steak Bake? Oh, and the Vegan Sausage Roll. They were so good, we think you deserve them all over again. A twice in a lifetime experience. Order through JustEat or Click+Collect.

  14. Someone ask Screwfix how come if I’m a man with size 11 feet I can choose from 140 pairs of boots, but as a female with size 4 feet I can only choose from 20 pairs? And they’re all ugly.
