By this point the band had been completely adopted by the acid house scene and the love was quickly reciprocated. Rave culture was already wild but it took a writer like Shaun Ryder to put the whole movement into words, which he did in “Rave On”: “Need a massive boogie ‘til we all pack out!” Club music was kind of an odd fit for the Mondays, whose tastes ran toward Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, and American rap music, but the two camps found common ground in hedonism. Rave culture gave the Mondays the endless reckless party they were looking for, and the Mondays gave rave culture an authentic dose of rock ‘n’ roll danger — not to mention the singular poetry of Shaun Ryder, who was a cross between a teenage dirtbag and a shaman. Hallelujah contains songs that left club floors ruined in their wake. Paul Oakenfold’s “Think About the Future” remix of “W.F.L.” is especially triumphant, leading off with Ryder’s sour invocation: “I wrote for luck / They sent me you / I sent for juice / You give me poison / I hold the line / You form the queue / Try anything hard / Is there anything else you can do?”
