formed in birmingham in 1978 and taking their name from dexedrine, a popular amphetamine on the northern soul scene, dexys midnight runners went on to become one of the most successful bands of the early 80s, amassing 10 top 40 singles (including two no 1s) and four top 20 albums - and that's without mentioning 'come on eileen'! after stealing the master tapes to their debut album (and successfully renegotiating their record deal in the process) the band released 'searching for the young soul rebels' in july 1980. to mark the 30th anniversary of this release, the original album has now been remastered and comes in deluxe packaging with an accompanying disc of bonus material. the extras comprise of all the non-album singles and b-sides, john peel and kid jensen radio sessions (which are being released for the first time physically) and five previously unreleased early demos.
