Dexys Midnight Runners, formed in Birmingham, are an English pop band who achieved success in the early to mid 1980s. They are best known in the UK 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. 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 and co-founder Kevin Rowland remaining in the band throughout, and only Rowland and “Big” Jim Paterson (trombone) appearing on all of the albums. The group disbanded in 1987, with Rowland becoming a solo artist. Dexys was reformed by Rowland in 2003 with new members, as well as a few returning members from the band’s original line up. In 2012, Dexys finally released their fourth album and a fifth followed in 2016.
