Dexys Midnight Runners - Searching for the Young Soul Rebels (1980)

Who the heck are Dexys Midnight Runners? The band who sang "C'mon Eilleen". Ohhhhhhhh.

That's how it goes really. They appear on one hit wonder countdowns!

DMR's was formed by the two Kevins from punk act, The Killjoys. Formed in 1978, they performed quite a few gigs with The Specials, who we've already established earlier, I can't stand. That didn't bode well.

Surprise though, it's really not THAT bad. Fairly middle of the road in quality, it's still quite pleasant and the lead singer's voice at least has some personality to it. It's just "good" though, which again really means they should not be on this list. Even worse, so is their second album.

Surely there were better 80s albums than this that could have been included?

Score - 6/10

Recommended - No.
