Sorry MP that is the only song I know.

The only other tidbit I remember was a tour with David Bowie where he picked them to open for him, they were still riding high on the success of "...Eileen", but at one show the fans were shouting "Bowie!!..Bowie!!..Bowie!!" all through Dexy's opening set, so the lead singer got really angry and told them to "Bleep Off".

Needless to say Bowie kicked them off the tour that night...that exhausts my knowledge about this band. But I did like their hit song and will soak up any information you want to share with us about them.:cheers:

Yay Dexy's :grinthumb

A couple I love that haven't been mentioned yet:

Geno




Jackie Wilson Said



^^^ The band once performed this on Top of the Pops (a long running, popular British TV chart show) with a picture of the Scottish darts player Jocky Wilson in the background instead of the American soul singer Jackie Wilson! I remember watching it at the time (as I recall it went out live) and it had me gostering. Everybody thought the background graphics crew on the programme had majorly stuffed up, until Kevin Rowland eventually owned up to doing it as a joke :heheh:

On a far away island .....
I used to enjoy watching Brushstrokes years ago and Dexy's Midnight Runners did the theme tune :)

Oops! It's already been posted. Great tune though :grinthumb
