Synopsis:
Originally formed in Birmingham in 1978, Dexys Midnight Runners based their sound around their love of 1960âs soul music. Fronted by enigmatic singer/songwriter Kevin Rowland, Dexys supported The Specials on a UK tour in 1979 when they were spotted by former Clash manager, Bernie Rhodes, and quickly signed their first record deal with EMI. A UK Number 1 followed in 1980 with âGeno❠taken from their debut album âSearching For The Young Soul Rebelsâ.
Following both a change of line-up and record label in 1981, Dexys found a new direction by melding the soul revival elements of their sound with Irish folk, resulting in them becoming a household name in 1982 with the ever-popular âCome On Eileen❠â a Number 1 hit both in the UK and the US. 1985 brought the critically acclaimed album âDonât Stand Me Downâ, now recognised as an all-time classic. The brilliance and longevity of Dexysâ work was recognised in 2003 when they received the Classic Songwriters Award at the 14th Annual Q Awards. Dexys subsequently reformed and embarked on a tour of UK theatres featuring, alongside Kevin, original member Pete Williams, long-term member Mick Talbot (Merton Parkas/Style Council) and new recruit Lucy Morgan on violin. Filmed on November 7th 2003 at The Liverpool Royal Court Theatre, Kevin and Pete share the vocal duties on many of the best known and loved Dexysâ songs. Kevinâs fine vocal form and new suave and sophisticated style prove that Dexys still have the power to captivate their audience in this intimate and highly entertaining show. Tracklisting:
