You already have a good couple of lists going.
If you really like Madness, perhaps you would like The English Beat or Bad Manners.
Johnny Socko and Mad Caddies have some songs with catchy horns.
If you like MU330 and Assorted Jelly Beans, you might like the Blue Meanies or Jeffries Fan Club.
For a little more variety check out Skankin' Pickle.
Cheers
