Biography

Dexys Midnight Runners (currently called Dexys) are an English pop band with soul influences, who achieved their major success in the early to mid-1980s. They are best known for their songs "Come On Eileen" and "Geno", both of which peaked at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, as well as six other top-20 singles. However in the U.S., due to lackluster promotion, Dexys' only hit was "Come On Eileen", which gave the band an undeserved image as "one-hit wonders".

Dexys Midnight Runners Biography

Dexys Midnight Runners (currently called Dexys) are an English pop band with soul influences, who achieved their major success in the early to mid-1980s. They are best known for their songs "Come On Eileen" and "Geno", both of which peaked at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, as well as six other top-20 singles. However in the U.S., due to lackluster promotion, Dexys' only hit was "Come On Eileen", which gave the band an undeserved image as "one-hit wonders".

During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dexys went through numerous personnel changes over the course of three albums and thirteen singles, with only singer/songwriter/co-founder Kevin Rowland remaining in the band through all of the transitions and only Rowland and "Big" Jim Paterson (trombone) appearing on all of the albums. The band broke up in 1987, with Rowland becoming a solo artist. Dexys was reformed by Rowland in the 2000s, with a few members from the band's original lineups re-joining, including Paterson. In 2012 the band released their fourth album.
