By the Editor!

Hello, good evening and welcome; probably the most overused introduction that madness ever came up with; It’s the edge of 2023 and I welcome you to issue One of Complete & Utter Madness the Madzine.

So firstly let’s meet, I’m Darren Bowen, and I have been a hardcore fan and collector of Madness since ‘79, and over the last 40+ years, I’ve found no cure; no matter how much money I throw at my conspirators, it’s a white line.

So why this fanzine?

It’s a great way to share my love of Madness, talk about Madness, share the latest news and put it directly into your hands for consumption. The zine is kind of a digest version of A Mad Life and the last few months of the Madness Collective and you still get to participate.

Another reason is that, sadly, there is such a lack of involvement or collaboration and getting any level of participation from the thousands of “followers” we have is almost impossible unless you throw a few quid or a free prize into the conversation; otherwise, you can expect crickets. After a year, it’s time for a new approach!

It’s been several years since any such issue of a Madness zine landed on anyone’s doorstep. Sure, you can get up-to-the-minute Madness news online but there’s nothing like settling down with a good zine and giving yourself a break from a screen – even better you now own a physical piece of Madness history.

Finally to those zines that came before, saw and left…

    The Madzine is produced with just the right mix of creativity, humour and fascinating information to make it a great read. The articles are informative and enjoyable to read, with lots of excellent photos and graphics in all the right places! My favorite article was “It’s Madness… One… Too…”, for its wealth of detail. Just wonderful.

    I wanted to pay homage to Madness fanzines from the late 80s and 90s with a contemporary twist in this issue. I hoped to reignite interest in print media and provide readers with something tangible and collectable. This edition features the Nutty Punters, classic cuttings from the music press of the 80s, a section for M.A.D.H.E.A.D.S, engaging feature articles, gig reviews, the results of the One Step Beyond… poll, and much more. I hope you enjoy reading this edition as much as I enjoyed creating it.
