Dexys Midnight Runners / Searching for the Soul Rebels

Featuring Geoff Blythe’s swingin' horn arrangements, Dexys daring debut Searching for the Young Soul Rebels (1980) brilliantly fused Northern Soul, jazz, blues, and pop with a dash of punk-meets-pub-rocker brashness for the masses.

Bassist Pete Williams takes his cue from the Motown and Stax greats, plying percolating pocket grooves that inspired us young folk to explore The Midnight Runners’ influences.

Dexys – as represented on this timeless slab - were among the best of their generation.
