Kevin Rowland
A failed priest at the age of eleven, a tramp at nineteen, a wandering minstrel by twenty one, Kevin Rowland now seems to be happiest as song and dance man with Dexys Midnight Runners.

Seb Shelton
Where do we begin, "Polish Sid," "Sid the Polak," "The Sergeant" are but three of the many titles applied to this drummer's many faceted personna. Seb, a resident of this country for many years, has adapted well to British ways, but even now occasionally finds himself queueing outside the local bread shop at five in the morning. Says hard-working Seb: "Leisure is only sweet after work well done."

Steven Brennan
Steven Brennan descibes himself as the "quiet, stop at home type." The young fiddler's idea of relaxation is to be tucked up by the fire reading a good play. It has been said he has much in common with his great uncle, Bernard Shaw.

Billy Adams
"Cakeman" is no longer an appropriate term to use when in the company of young Billy Adams, for volatile Billy has for six long months been single-minded in his determination to beat his passion for sweet pastries. He has by all accounts succeeded, although some say at the expense of gaining a reputation as something of a magpie. It has to be stressed that allegations of this nature are totally unfounded. The fact that some members of the group have taken to calling him "light-fingers" after a series of unfortunate coincidences concerning their personal valuables is quite rightly dismissed by adamant Billy in the jovial nature it was surely intended.

Helen O'Hara
The eldest of seven children, not surprisingly the young Helen O'Hara had her hands full. When she wasn't helping Mum with the cooking and cleaning, the Ballymena Belle practiced hard and long on the violin. Her efforts have of course paid off for tender Helen has now found success playing the fiddle in Dexys Midnight Runners. Mum and the kids are extremely proud and like nothing better than to gather round the telly and watch Helen performing on T.V.
