Happy Mondays '48 Hour Party People' live review 
Adam Sweeting has written a quite entertaining review in The Guardian of last weekend's 48 Hour Party People Brixton Academy live shows featuring Happy Mondays and The Farm, as evidenced by this opening extract:

"The resurrection of Happy Mondays brings you two miracles. Firstly, Shaun Ryder is still alive, and secondly, they sound remarkably good considering the vast stretches of bad road they've travelled. For the first night of Brixton's 48 Hour Party People knees-up, they strolled on to a sustained bellow of approval from the crowd, who had endured a drab opening set from the Farm."
