Dexys Midnight Runners

Dexys Midnight Runners - the name consistently spelled without an apostrophe - were a British Post-punk and Northern Soul band who achieved their major success in the early to mid 1980s. The word "Dexys" in this case, comes from a colloquialism of "dextroamphetamine" or "purple hearts," a type of amphetamine diet pill that was a popular "upper" drug with England's Northern Soul scene in the 1960s. Founded by former singer of the Killjoys, Kevin Rowland and guitarist Kevin "Al" Archer, in Birmingham (UK) 1978. Read more on Last.fm
