The Madchester scene came about in the late 1980s and early 1990s in Manchester, England. I was really into this music during high school, and here are some of my favorite bands from the era:
The Charlatans: "Sproston Green"
Inspiral Carpets: "She Comes In The Fall"
The Stone Roses: "One Love"
Happy Mondays: "Kinky Afro"
New Fast Automatic Daffodils: "Big"
