The Blow Monkeys are to coming to Paisley on Saturday.

The British new wave/sophisti-pop band has a career spanning over 40 years.

Always making new music, always stretching their own musical boundaries 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.

The band reformed in 2008 and The Blow Monkeys have been incredibly productive releasing six new albums and playing hundreds of concerts. Their latest album came out in September 2021 called “Journey To You” and was recorded during Covid-19 lockdown. It features the extraordinary single “Time Storm”.
