Madchester was a music scene that developed in Manchester, England, towards the end of the 1980s and into the early 1990s. The music that emerged from the scene mixed psychedelic rock and dance music. The music scene in Manchester immediately before the Madchester era had been dominated by bands such as The Smiths, New Order and The Fall and James. These bands were to become a significant influence on the Madchester scene. Artists associated with the scene included New Order, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets, Northside, 808 State, James, The Charlatans, A Guy Called Gerald and other notable bands. At that time, The Haçienda nightclub was a major catalyst for the distinctive musical ethos in the city that was called the Second Summer of Love.
