6. Dexys Midnight Runners

LTW : One of the most perfectly realised bands of all time the Dexys combined a theatrical flair with some genuinely heartfelt songs that defied all styles and rewrote the template with Kevin’s own genius…

Jim Bob : A perfect album from start to finish. So much has clearly gone in to every aspect of it. It’s like an opera. I remember hearing ‘Come on Eileen’ for the first time on the radio at work and was blown away by the unique sound of it. I still am.
