"Dexys Midnight Runners" by Richard White
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Dexys Midnight Runners were one of the most misunderstood and overlooked groups of the 1980s. At the centre of it all was their front man and originator Kevin Rowland, with a reputation for maintaining control and domination over Dexys at all costs. Author Richard White has conducted in-depth interviews with former members of the band. It sheds new light on the Dexys legend including the fractious period of writing and recording the classic "Come on Eileen", one of the biggest selling singles in UK history and its parent album "Too Rye Ay". While celebrating their achievements on record and on stage, this book also uncovers aspects of Rowlands working methods in the studio and the subsequent fall-out and break-ups that ensued. It details Kevin Rowland's return and the latest Dexys re-invention, championed on a triumphant tour in 2003.
