For that Ska Fan on Your Holiday Gift List!

It may be that it simply appeals to the ska collector in me, or that it possesses some irresistible techno-geek/cool factor, but the Madness Concert Stick (which comes pre-loaded your choice of one of a host of live recordings made at Madness concerts during 2009 and also functions as a 1GB flash drive) seems like a pretty cool Xmas or Hanukkah gift for that special rude boy or girl on your naughty but nice list.

Plus, I do know that the somewhat recent re-design of Madness' classic 'M' logo is pretty sweet-- and anything-Madness related just tends to be pretty incredible, just like the band themselves.

i dont think i understand this. its $30-$50 for a madness shaped flash drive with a live show on it?

Yes. Though, you have to remember that the dollar is weak against the British pound. Plus, the main concept behind offering these flash drives is that you would catch one of Madness' shows and then be able to pick up a live recording of what you just experienced immediately after the gig. I'm not suggesting they're a good value for your money--they're expensive. But still cool.

i agree that its cool, i just though i was missing something.

i also didnt even take the conversion into account, it makes much more sense that its 15-25 pounds.

I've always hated how poorly the US dollar fares against the British Pound...we suck.
