LOA JAMZ!: COME ON EILEEN

It's always wierd when one of those one-hit-wonder bands is able to come up with one of those jukebox classics that gets you krunk every time you hear it. I remember seeing these dudes perform this on Saturday Night Live way back in the day. It was dope because there was like 30 dirty motherfuckers up there in overalls just rocking their shit. One of my homies/ ill artist Kelsey Brookes has been known to rock a Dexy's M.R. steezo with the overalls and crazy-person beard... Shit is tight.

Dexy's was crazy popular in the UK before this record. This was also a later lineup. The original band was a kick-ass straight soul band with a great horn section and none of the folky/celtic influences which came later. Think Tower Of Power or the Bar Kays, with a distinctly UK/Northern Soul sound. Not to disparage this record, which is more than decent. It just doesn't hold a candle to their earlier work.
