Considering Dexys' high turn-over of band
members and the quality of musicians involved it is hardly surprising that many ex-Midnight Runners went on to be
in other bands. This page features a small selection of songs performed by people who have been a part
of the Dexys story together with links to pages about those artists. The selection of groups and songs is updated regularly
so please call back soon to sample more Dexys-related rarities. To celebrate the recent CD release of Kevin Archer's post-Dexys
material, the latest batch of updates all have a Blue Ox Babes theme...
"EAST TO WEST" (Alt. version)
Alternative, unreleased version of track from
the new CD "Apples And Oranges" , 2009.

Kevin Archer's post-Dexys outfit whose 1988 album
"Apples And Oranges" (featuring many ex-Dexys players) will finally be released on 18th May 2009 by Cherry Red Records.
