The Blow Monkeysformed in 1981, releasing a single "Live Today, Love Tomorrow" on the tiny Parasol label the following year and signing to RCA and releasing a debut album "Limping For A Generation" in 1982 which featured the timless singles "Atomic Lullaby", "Wildflower" & "The Man from Russia".

It wasn’t until 1986, however, that the band achieved the commercial success that matched their critical acclaim, the song "Digging Your Scene" becoming a massive worldwide hit from the "Animal Magic" LP.

A year later the band released "It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way" which hit the No. 5 slot in the UK before the follow up album "She Was Only A Grocer’s Daughter" left controversy in its wake: if some remained unaware that erstwhile UK PM Margaret Thatcher was the daughter of a grocer then the subsequent duet with Chicago soul/funk legendCurtis Mayfield;"Celebrate (The Day After You)" left no doubt whereThe Blow Monkeysstood on the subject. Interestingly,The Blow Monkeystook a Thatcher aphorism – namely, “there’s no such thing as society” – as a starting point for their next album, "Whoops! There Goes The Neighbourhood" a politically-motivated record that featured "Wait", a collaboration with soul divaKym Mazelle.

The latter proved an epiphany of sorts (although RCA released a greatest hits compilation, "Choices", that immediately achieved gold status in 1989) and featured the Balearic classic "La Passionara" and "Be Not Afraid", a duet with the original and legendary Algerian Rai rebelCheb Khaled.

Fast forward twenty years andThe Blow Monkeysare back together and remain"Dr."Robert Howard(vocals, guitar),Neville Henry(saxophone),Mick Anker(bass) andTony Kiley(drums).
