To Hell With Blue Mondays – Here’s… BLACK GRAPE

Weekly firework to dance your Blue Mondays into oblivion…


‘Get Higher’ by BLACK GRAPE


Remember BLACK GRAPE? Actually a mix of Happy Mondays and Ruthless Rap Assassins members doing what they did before: going totally apeshit on the dancefloor with Bez leading the moves. Although they were full time dopeheads they managed somehow
to create several mesmeric vibes like GET HIGHER with its hilarious fabricated lines
about drugs by former American president and his first lady, Ronald & Nancy Reagan,
at the start of this sonic orgy. Dance your blue Monday away like it’s already weekend,
with a big grin on your face. Empty your head and activate your limbs. Here we go…

“Nancy is joining me because the message this evening is not my message, but ours. Despite
our best efforts, shortages of marijuana are now being reported. From the early days of our administration, Nancy has been abusing marijuana on a daily basis and her personal observations and efforts have given her such dramatic insights that I wanted her
to share them with you this evening….”

“I yearned to find a way to help share the message that drugs open your eyes to life.
To see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to his children.”

Get Higher was on their second and final 1997 album ‘Stupid Stupid Stupid’
