The British pop band, Blow Monkeys were founded in 1981 by frontman Dr. Robert, bassist Mick Anker, Saxophonist Neville Henry and drummer Tony Kiley. A new wave orientated act they released their first single, “Live Today Love Tomorrow” in 1982 before becoming a more commercial pop rock act and then a dance act before splitting in the 1990s.
Their debut album, “Limping for a Generation” was released in 1984 but wasn’t a major success. Their first major success came in 1986 with the release of their second album, “Animal Magic” and the hit single “Digging Your Scene” which reached No.12 in the UK and No.14 in the US. January 1987 saw their third album, “She Was Only a Grocer’s Daughter” released which made No.20 in the UK mainly thanks to the single, “It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way” which made No.5 in the singles chart.
1990 saw the release of their final album, “Springtime for the World” before the band split up. In 2007 the band members announced a reunion with a new album, “Devil’s Tavern” and a tour in 2008.
