The Blow Monkeys

About The Blow Monkeys

The Blow Monkeys are unique. In a career spanning over 35 years (so far!) they are always making new music, challenging themselves and their audience .

With worldwide hits such as the classics “Digging Your Scene” and “It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way”, they became household names but there was always so much more going on with these simian soulsters.

Their relentless desire to move forward, to collaborate, to be socially engaged and to have something to contribute.

Back in the 80’s they worked with people as varied as Curtis Mayfield, Paul Weller, Cheb Khaled and even Jamaican Toaster EEK-a-Mouse!. “No band since The Clash in their early 80’s heyday had attempted to act as a sounding board for such politically engaged, eclectic music”

Dr Robert even took time out to release one of the UK’s first homegrown ‘house’ records “Wait”, his top 5 duet with Chicago soul diva Kym Maselle.

And so the journey continues. Reformed in 2008 The Blow Monkeys released possibly their finest work yet “The Wild River” ( Oct 17 2018) their fifth album since reforming. Now joined by ex Galliano stickman Crispin Taylor on drums they are reinvigorated and recharged. In concert they are indeed sight to see. Soulful, funky and smart.

These Monkeys continue to evolve. From their beginnings on the underground club scene right through to their appearance on the biggest selling soundtrack of all time “Dirty Dancing” and beyond.

Long may they swing.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Blow Monkeys are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
