Contemporaries of Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Charlatans and The Inspiral Carpets, The Farm were Liverpool’s contribution to the “Madchester” era of the early ‘90s. During the first three years of that decade, the band enjoyed 10 hit singles, including two Top 10s, as well as a Number 1 album, Spartacus, in 1991. With their memorable melodies propelled by easy, looselimbed dance rhythms, The Farm rode the crest of the “baggy” wave, their songs such as All Together Now and Groovy Train capturing that heady, optimistic time when indie bands made gently euphoric sounds for dancefloors and encouraged a generation of guitar fans to embrace rave music and club culture.
