    Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen (Original Promo Restored) (1982) (HD)..

    Why another upload you might ask, well as there are numerous versions of this video on the internet with varying lengths (anything from 3 minutes 30 seconds to 4 minutes 15) but not one of them contains all the clips/ scenes from the original video and the shorter ones have verses/ choruses missing that were on the original single...

    All of the longer versions that have the full original audio track strangely enough have been edited to remove the scene where the camera pans up the derelict building to reveal various band members sitting on window ledges and has been replaced by a looped/ repeated scene that isn't even in sync to the song...

    So here it is, the original full length promo video with the cut scenes restored and of course as usual the video tidied up to be the sharpest and clearest possible... :-)

  • Dexys Midnight Runners - Geno

    3:32

    Geno! Geno! Geno! Geno! Geno!
    Back in '68 in a sweaty club
    Oh, Geno
    Before Jimmy's Machine and The Rocksteady Rub
    Oh-oh-oh Geno-o
    On a night when flowers didn't suit my shoes
    After a week of flunkin' and bunkin' school
    The lowest head in the crowd that night
    Just practicin' steps and keepin' outta the fights

    Academic inspiration, you gave me none
    But you were Michael the lover
    The fighter that won
    But now just look at me
    I'm looking down at you
    No, I'm not beinh flash
    It's what I'm built to do

    That man took the stage, his towel was swingin' high
    Oh Geno
    This man was my bombers, my Dexy's, my high
    Oh-oh-oh Geno-o
    The crowd they all hailed you, and chanted your name
    But they never knew like we knew
    Me and you were the same
    And now you're all over, your song is so tame, brrrrr
    You fed me, you bred me, I'll remember your name

    Academic inspiration, you gave me none
    You were Michael the lover
    The fighter that won
    But now just look at me
    I'm looking down at you
    No, I'm not being flash
    It's what I'm built to do

    Oh Geno, Woh-oh-oh Geno-o
    Oh Geno, Woh-oh-oh Geno-o

  • Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen

    7:27

    If you have found this website I assume that you may already know something of Kevin Rowland and Dexys Midnight Runners but if you came here by mistake or if you have only recently converted to the new soul vision then here is a quick re-cap of the story so far....
    It all began back in July 1978 when Kevin Rowland and Kevin Archer (later forced to change his name to Al after Rowland said there's only room for one Kevin in this band) quit their second division Birmingham punk outfit, The Killjoys. While everyone else was busy starting the New Romantic movement Rowland and Archer looked to the 1960s soul icons for their inspiration and decided to form an eight piece soul band. The name came from the amphetamine of choice for the Northern Soul scene - dexedrine. Their image, fashioned by Rowland, was New York Italian docker chic ! Donkey jackets, woolly hats and polo neck jumpers. Very much like the early Robert De Niro film Mean Streets .The debut single Dance Stance (later re-named Burn It Down), an attack on racism against the Irish, struggled into the UK charts at number 40. Trying to finance a band of eight was proving very difficult and it is alleged that Rowland instigated many shoplifting trips to supplement their income. The second single Geno, a tribute to 60s soul singer Geno Washington, went to the top of the charts in 1980. Two months later the debut album Searching For The Young Soul Rebels was released to critical acclaim and commercial success. Although this was only after the band stole the master tapes in order to re-negotiate a better contract. In May 1980 they went on a 44 date tour - the Straight To The Heart tour and in August followed it up with the Intense Emotions Tour. Another Top 10 single, There There My Dear followed but then the release of the blatantly uncommercial Keep It Pt2 preceded the spilt of Dexys mark 1. Rowland complained about losing control of the band and the band complained about his excessive control !! In 1981 only Kevin Rowland and Big Jim Paterson remained from the original line up. Most of the others went to form The Bureau or The Blue Ox Babes. Rowland recruited a new team including Seb Shelton from mod band Secret Affair on drums. After one more single for EMI, the excellent Plan B the band moved to Phonogram and along with that came a new image. A uniform of boxing boots, anoraks with hoods and pony tails. Two singles, Show Me and Liars A To E, continued their chart success and a highly acclaimed live show The Projected Passion Revue culminated at the Old Vic Theatre in London.
    By 1982 though, another change of line up and image had taken place. Rowland's right hand man, Big Jim Paterson, had left and the Celtic Soul Brother incarnation was launched in Newcastle at the BBC In Concert gig. (Rowland now admits that the idea for a combination of brass and strings had been influenced by a tape that Al Archer, now of The Blue Ox Babes, had lent him). Come On Eileen became the biggest selling UK single of 1982 and a US number one in 1983. The album Too-Ry-Ay and subsequent tour The Bridge received rave reviews.
    Dexys disappeared for 18 months to work on the next album Don't Stand Me down. When they returned they were down to a four piece and several session musicians. Another uniform came with the new album, this time a smart neat college preppie look. Many think that this is Rowland's greatest work but he insisted that there would be no singles. The album sold poorly and out of desperation the record company released This Is What She's Like as a single. It didn't help and the band fell apart. Although another single Because Of You(theme to Brush Strokes) briefly charted.
    In 1988 Rowland returned as a soloist with the weak country pop album The Wanderer. However, many agree that the production let it down and that the songs were reasonably good.
    Kevin Rowland spent the following years battling against depression, bankruptcy and cocaine addiction. Although, in 1993 he joined up with Big Jim again but despite a couple of TV performances nothing was ever officially released.
    In 1996, Creation Records signed Kevin Rowland and My Beauty, an idiosyncratic covers album, was released in 1999. It received mixed reviews but sold very poorly (allegedly less that 500 copies). Perhaps because of the new image that went with it - dresses and suspenders !
    2001, found Kevin doing reading recitals - from The Look a book about fashion and music by Paul Gorman. Kevin supplied a few pages to the book and read excerpts as well as performing a couple of songs live to backing tapes.
    That just about brings us up to date. Keep an eye on my latest news page for any other updates.
    As Jon Wilde said once in the Dexys fanzine Keep On Running ...YOU'D HAVE TO BE A HALF-WIT TO BET AGAINST A MAN OF KEV'S CALIBRE PULLING OFF A HUGE COMEBACK.

    More please and thank you
    More please and thank you
    Introducing the Celtic Soul Brothers
    And featuring the Strong Devoted
    Ladies and gentlemen,
    would you now please take your leave

    Because we've sat back looking and nearly been took
    Even been scared, but now I don't care
    And I'm telling anyone who'll listen
    I've seen what's on show
    and now there's no more to know
    And I've been there, I've been seen there
    I've seemed it, dreamed it, schemed it, beened it

    We're coming through
    How do you do?

    Excuse me please
    You're standing in my space
    So step aside, now your time's up
    Come on my friends
    I would now like to propose a toast

    To the strength that I've see that's surrounding me
    'Cos I've been scared, but now I don't care
    And I'm telling anyone who'll listen
    I've seen what's on show
    and now there's no more to know
    And I've been there, I've been seen there
    I've seemed it, dreamed it, schemed it

    (Instrumental)

    You see I know this to be true
    Now would I lie to you?
    And I'm not waiting for approval from you
    We're coming through.

    Ooh we're coming through
    How do you do?

  • Dexys Nowhere Is Home Documentary

    1:30:23

    Dexys Midnight Runners (currently officially Dexys, their former nickname, styled without an apostropheare an English pop band with soul influences, who achieved their major 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. Come On Eileen also topped the US Billboard Hot 100, and with extensive airplay on MTV they are associated with the Second British Invasion.
    During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dexys went through numerous personnel changes over the course of three albums and 13 singles, with only singer/songwriter/co-founder Kevin Rowland remaining in the band through all of the transitions and only Rowland and Big Jim Paterson (trombone) appearing on all of the albums. By 1985, the band consisted only of Rowland and long-standing members Helen O'Hara (violin) and Billy Adams (guitar). The band broke up in 1987, with Rowland becoming a solo artist. After two failed restart attempts, Dexys was reformed by Rowland in 2003 with new members, as well as a few returning members from the band's original lineup (known as Dexys Mark I). Dexys released their fourth album in 2012 and a fifth followed in 2016.

Speaking on the 6music show, Kevin Rowland explained the 27-year gap between albums I wanted to have material that I felt confident enough about ... I've got high standards, and that's a blessing and a curse. The perfectionism hasn't gone, although these days I won't storm out of a room swearing and shouting at people.
