Despite a handful of critically acclaimed independent singles, the success of the Madchester
“baggy” movement in the UK in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s elevated Liverpool-based
band The Farm to the forefront of the scene with the likes of The Stone Roses, The Happy
Mondays & The Inspiral Carpets.
During a 12 month period, the band achieved chart success with the singles “Groovy Train” and “All Together Now” charting at number 6 and 4 respectively, with “All Together Now” selling in excess of 500,000 copies. Following on from the singles success, the debut album “Spartacus” entered the album chart at Number One. The band scored further Top Forty chart success with fellow Liverpudlian Pete Wylie (Mighty Wah!) on the re-released version of “Sinful” (reaching #28), in addition to a cover of the classic
Human League anthem “Don’t You Want Me” (reaching #18)
“alltogethernow – The Very Best Of The Farm – The Videos” brings together 8 of the bands chart video exploits including the official FA England single for the 2004 European Football Championships, the remixed “alltogethernow 2004”.
