Wire's 60 Concerts That Shook The World 

Happy Mondays' gig at the Limelight, Belfast, in 1989 is listed amongst '60 Concerts that Shook the World' in this month's Wire (February 2007).

This is quite interesting given they are amongst a list of experimental / avant garde / non-commercial acts typical of the magazine e.g. The Aka Pygmies, Autechre, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra etc. etc.

But then, strip away all the baggy hype, tabloid fodder, drug crap and the Mondays were very out there.

With thanks to Matthew Robertson.
