Madchester refers to a period during the late 1980s and early 1990s when Manchester was the focus for a lot of the new musical talent hitting the UK indie music scene.
The Madchester music was a combination of indie rock, psychedelia, and dance.
Although Manchester has remained a key city on the UK music scene,'Madchester' itself fizzled out by the mid-1990s; in part this was a consequence of the aforementioned drug culture, which greatly slowed the release schedule of the movement's key acts.

Another key factor in the build-up to Madchester towards the end of that year was the sudden arrival of the drug ecstasy in the city - legend has it that a friend of the Happy Mondays was a pioneer in bringing the drug into the country from Amsterdam.
The immediate influence of Madchester was in inspiring the wider baggy movement in the UK, with bands from various parts of the country producing music in the early 1990s heavily influenced by the main Madchester players.
More generally, the Madchester scene was groundbreaking in the way it brought together dance music and alternative rock, in particular the combination of the types of drumming found in funk and disco music (and sampled in 80s hip-hop music) with jingle-jangle guitar.

 [No title]
Madchester was a massive youth movement in the late 1980's, and the most exciting musical movement since the two-tone explosion 10 years previosly.
Their classic 60s guitar sound fused with the spirit, rhythm and sensibilities of late-80s Mancunian club culture, helped the band lead an indie-dance crossover that was to define a new era in British pop music.
By late '89 they were everywhere and the media were dishing out a definition: Manchester mutated into Madchester, and the so-called 'baggy' phenomenon of bands crossing the indie-dance divide was born.

 Baggy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The scene was extremely influenced by Madchester, although the scene was not geographically confined to Manchester.
Baggy was characterised by psychedelia- and acid house-influenced guitar music, often with a funky drummer beat, similar to the work of the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses.
Some baggy bands disappeared after the scene was no longer popular, and others evolved into indie rock or Britpop bands who remained popular throughout the 1990s.
