Short Synopsis
Growing Out Of It is a story of growing up in a certain time and place when anything felt possible, even a bunch of north London lads forming a ska revival band—and becoming one of Britain's best-loved groups.

Full Synopsis
Whether flying across a screen or lighting up the stage, Madness's wild, energetic sax player has always been hard to miss. For Lee "Kix" Thompson, life is about having fun—even when times are tough. Growing Out Of It is the tale of one "nutty boy" not really growing out of it at all. From getting up to no good as a teenager to his many musical (mis)adventures in the 1970s, Lee's memoir of his formative years captures his enduring love for his north London stomping ground, where he first met the other members of Madness. This is a story of growing up in a certain time and place when anything felt possible, even a bunch of north London lads forming a ska revival band—and becoming one of Britain's best-loved groups.
