Dexys Midnight Runners: Fact And Fiction

Lesley White, Face, The, September 1982

THE FACE turned down an offer to interview Kevin Rowland earlier in the summer because of unacceptable preconditions which were later withdrawn. Last in line for the season's Kevin Rowland interviews has its consolations however, an opportunity not only to comment on the old mythology surrounding Rowland and Dexys Midnight Runners but also to correct some of the brand new myths taking shape out of Kevin's recent round of press activity. This interview for THE FACE is by LESLEY WHITE.
