Biography

The Madding Crowd are the germination of an idea that was had around March 2009, but didn't really come into fruition until around April 2010. We are from Manchester and we strive to make music that is different, music with feeling, with passion, with a voice, with something to say. Music that is art. It is our opinion that the world of music has become a stale and sad place, governed by money and careerism (as most things are nowadays), a place in which no one is any longer willing to take risks and talk about life and humanity as it is in the 21st century. No one is real now and everything is motivated by financial gain, everyone is afraid to say things of any substance, music is festering with charlatans and liars, people who patronise and appoint themselves as icons when that is not for them to decide. But there is nothing fake here, we are as genuine, as human, as chaotic and beautiful and glamorous as it gets, there is no lying with us - there is no one like us.
