Hipsway – The Honeythief (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th January 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

Hipsway were a Scottish synth-pop band formed in Glasgow in 1984 by ex-Altered Images guitarist Johnny McElhone on bass, and featuring Grahame Skinner (vocals), Pim Jones (guitar) and Harry Travers (drums). Skinner and Travers had been members of the band Kites with Paul McGrath and Ian McGreevy before Hipsway formed. Their music was characterized by Skinner’s deep vocals and Jones’ tight guitar playing. They were quickly signed up by Mercury Records and by 1985 had released their first, eponymously-titled album. The album was a moderate success in the UK Albums Chart; while the single, “The Honeythief”, made #17 in the UK Singles Chart, and also reached the Top 20 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.
