One Step Behind – The Masters of MADNESS

One Step Behind are the UK's PREMIER MADNESS tribute band. The band was formed in Spring 1993 and has achieved widespread recognition in an unusually short time. At first they played low profile venues in their native London but quickly progressed and were invited to play larger and more prominent venues such as The Grand The Venue and The Marquee.

Each member of One Step Behind grew up as a Madness fan and for each perfecting his portrayal of his original Madness counterpart has been a labour of love. They strive to match every detail of the original both musically and in appearance. Like Madness One Step Behind are well known for their on-stage antics with which they build up an authentic 'Nutty' atmosphere. This is One Step Behind's philosophy - to carry forward the Mad mantle into the nineties and beyond.

They feel that by replicating one of the nation's best-loved institutions they are keeping alive the spirit that inspired a whole generation and still enjoys enormous popularity today. One Step Behind see themselves as perpetuating the popularity of Madness who now rarely appear in public.

One Step Behind were featured in an article in the London Evening Standard (8/7/97) stating that they were one of the two top tribute bands currently on the circuit.

Madness Quotes:-
Suggsy at the G-MEX in Manchester; He walked up to the microphone and said "By the way we're MADNESS not One Step Behind!!" and subsequently in the Melody Maker review that followed the headline was One Step Behind!!

A fan at a NUTTY BOYS gig at the Powerhaus in Islington reported to me that Lee Thompson gave One Step Behind a couple of good compliments as the night continued he said they were "Single handedley keeping the good ship Madness afloat".

Lee Thomson also turned up at the band's last gig at the SWAN in Fulham recently and played with the band on a couple of songs notably LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY and commented that the band were TIGHT AS A DUCK'S A*** and are BRILLIANT!!
