Deacon Blue – The Artist
Deacon Blue are a Scottish pop rock band formed in Glasgow during 1985. The line-up of the band consists of vocalists Ricky Ross and Lorraine McIntosh, keyboard player James Prime and drummer Dougie Vipond. The band released their debut album, Raintown, in 1987 in the United Kingdom. Their second album, When the World Knows Your Name (1989), topped the UK Albums Chart for two weeks, and included “Real Gone Kid” which became their first top ten single in the UK Singles Chart. Deacon Blue released their fourth album, Whatever You Say, Say Nothing, in 1993. The band split in 1994, following which Vipond began a career in television. Five years later, the band held a reunion gig, and this led on to a new album, Walking Back Home, with the band now working on a part-time basis.
Twist And Shout – The Song
‘Twist And Shout’ is the second single from the album ‘Fellow Hoodlums’ by the Scottish rock band Deacon Blue. ‘Twist and Shout’ had an unusual combination of pop and Cajun zydeco. “Twist and Shout” is not the same song made famous by the Topnotes, The Isley Brothers, and the Beatles. However, the 12″ single of Deacon Blue’s release, perhaps in a nod to the common name, contains a live cover of the Beatles’ “I’m Down”. Additionally, towards the end of this song, the lyrics; “Come on, come on baby” and “Work it all out” can be heard, quite similar to how they are sung in the other “Twist and Shout”.
