Remember 1980s hits Digging Your Scene and It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way?

The band behind those two singles, The Blow Monkeys, will be appearing live in St Albans next week.

They will be performing at The Horn on Thursday, July 6.

Led by charismatic singer-songwriter Robert Howard, aka Dr Robert, and ably assisted by bassist Mick Anker, drummer Tony Kiley and saxophonist Neville Henry, they further cemented their reputation with hits such as Choice?, Wait – a UK top 10 hit with soul diva Kym Mazelle – and Celebrate (The Day After You), a duet with soul legend Curtis Mayfield.

They also recorded You Don’t Own Me, which appeared on the multi-platinum selling soundtrack to the film Dirty Dancing.
