    "I remember thinking, 'We're really onto something here.'" - "Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but Dexys Midnight Runners released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back. Frontman Kevin Rowland and trombonist Jim Paterson chatted with us about their long-in-the-making fourth album, One Day I'm Going to Soar, and how they came up with "Eileen": http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/dexys_kevin_rowland_and_jim_paterson_/

    Yeah, otherwise they would probably shit on Rowland for pulling something similar to Billy Corgan....the whole 'this is not the real SP anymore!!' kind of thing. Great move out of all the missteps Kevin has had in his career..

    Probably to draw attention towards the new material, create a distinction from Dexys Midnight Runners

    Why shorten the name? I don't get that. [2]

    One Day I'm Going to Soar is easily the most bland and dull album of the year. How is Gregory Porter a similar artist? This is the most soulless 'soul' album I've ever heard.

    Fantastic album, I love the sound they've managed to get on the drums, so real and warm and live sounding.

    Did they ever go away? Doesn't sound like it.

    Absolutely loving 'One Day I'm Going To Soar'. Worth the wait. The passion still burns as brightly as ever. I'm stunned that 2012 has already yielded two really amazing albums by two of my all time heroes - John Lydon and Kevin Rowland. It's a strange and wonderful world and no mistake...

    Well, let me restate the obvious: Kevin Rowland, you're a mad, sad genious. <3
