Biografia

Dexys Midnight Runners é uma banda formada no início dos anos 80, cuja principal figura é o vocalista Kevin Rowland.

O grupo lançou três albuns e em cada um deles apresentava uma formação diferente, mantendo apenas o trombonista além do vocalista fundador (a dupla também era responsável pela co-autoria da maioria das canções). O termos “Dexys” é uma abreviatura da substância dexedrina.

O primeiro álbum, Searching for the young soul rebels, apresentava uma vigorosa releitura do Soul do estilo da extinta gravadora STAXX, com destaque para a sessão de metais, apesar de seu som anacrônico. Influenciados por, entre outros, Aretha Franklin e Otis Redding, os Dexys viram o hit Geno (em homenagem ao soulman Geno Washington) chegar aos topos da parada.

Brigas e discussões, aliadas ao forte temperamento de Kevin, levaram à dissolução da primeira formação e a um novo time de músicos. O viual de jovens da classe operária - idéia tirada do filme Mean Streets (no Brasil, “Caminhos Perigosos”), de Martin Scorsese, deu lugar a um figurino cigano de macacões e boinas. Com a adição de um duo de violinos e banjo, o álbum Too-rye-eye conquistou o mundo com o sucesso Come On Eileen. A influência, desta vez, era o bardo Van Morrison, de quem o grupo regrava Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile).

    "I remember thinking, 'We're really onto something here.'" - "Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but Dexys Midnight Runners released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back. Frontman Kevin Rowland and trombonist Jim Paterson chatted with us about their long-in-the-making fourth album, One Day I'm Going to Soar, and how they came up with "Eileen": http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/dexys_kevin_rowland_and_jim_paterson_/

    Does anyone know the name of the song played in a video that I just saw (featured as a 'fill' at Other Voices festival 'live' streaming from Dingle) where Kevin Rowland is wearing hat, sang with very pretty woman doing almost a drama/song about a guy named Kevin who jilted her. Loved it, and need to know the title of song.

    I didn't know this group was more than a one-hit wonder until recently when I saw a couple of their albums on a "best albums" list. I was like, "Wait, you mean they have other good songs? Why didn't I know this sooner?" Stupid, I know. There's so much music out there. It's hard to find the time to sample it all. I'm glad I made the time to look into their full library because they absolutely have other songs as good as Eileen.

    I'd known Come on Eileen before I watched "Perks..." but the movie reminded me of it. It's also a bit strange for me that lots of people heard it in this movie for the first time ever but it's good they did at all.
