The Kevin Rowland DJ Show (Dexys)

The Kevin Rowland DJ Show (Dexys)

BH&DWMSC

Saturday

Dexy’s Midnight Runners founder and frontman Rowland gave us some of the great pop moments of the 1980s and beyond. From the bolshy vision of “Searching for the Young Soul Rebels” through the celtic-gumbo of “Too-Rye-Ay” and '85's neglected masterpiece, “Don't Stand Me Down”, his is a towering contribution to British music, both visually and musically. Post-reformation Dexy’s albums are not lacking in chirpy Anglo-Irish spirit and snappy sensibility, and the same goes for Rowland’s solo work, which addresses more personal themes. A proper homegrown legend.
