One Man's Madness

A feature length rockdocmockumentary telling the story of Madness' Lee Thompson ...with other peoples words.

View Store

For the first time on DVD: Lee Thompson’s story told by Lee & Madness, his family, friends and musicologists. Who all look a little like him….

Lee “Kix” Thompson is a most unlikely character.
Early career choices had him spend a year in a detention centre.
He still hasn’t found the receipt for his first saxophone.
Luckily he met two other unlikely characters: Mike Barso Barson and Chrissy Boy Foreman who shared his interests of graffiti, train hopping and music.

This hilarious and joyful feature length film follows the journey of Lee from meeting Barso and Chrissy Boy, and later Suggs, Chas, Woody and Bedders, and them starting to make music together in what was to become one of Britain’s most iconic and successful bands, Madness.

Following the path of Lee’s life through his lyrics in such classes as “The Prince”, “Embarrassment”, “House of Fun”, “Lovestruck” and “NW5”, the band, friends, family and musicologists discuss his work, but strangely they all look a little like Lee…

“It takes something to be the unpredictable one in a group called Madness!” – Phill Jupitus, April 2018.

As the saxophone player and a founding member of Madness, Lee Thompson’s life has been as exciting, zany and just plain crackers as his new film, One Man’s Madness. OMM is a “mocku-rocku-documentary” about Lee’s time before and during the band’s career, which is still going strong after nearly 40 years. The film features cameos by his bandmates and some very special appearances by their mothers and fathers, and even Lee’s sister and his wife. These are talking heads with a difference though; nobody is spared the Lee Thompson treatment as he assumes the identities of characters from the Madness story, including Dave Robinson (founder of Stiff Records) alongside the band’s manager, accountant and lawyer. One Man’s Madness is by turns funny, outrageous and poignant, but most of all it exposes Lee as the beating heart of Madness – an unpredictable genius, fantastic performer and inspirational songwriter.

This accompanying 2CD soundtrack album features music from the film, including hits by Madness, as it charts Lee’s journey through his illustrious career. Also included is Ian Dury’s ‘England’s Glory’, tracks from Lee’s side projects Crunch! (with Madness guitarist, Chrissy Boy) and The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra, alongside Lee’s previously unreleased version of Prince Buster’s ‘Sit Down And Wonder’. The album is also peppered with dialogue quotes and operatic intros to some of the most famous Madness songs.
