| The Blow Monkeys


British pop/rock quartet the Blow Monkeys, led by singer/guitarist "Dr. Robert" (b. Bruce Robert Howard, May 2, 1961, Norfolk, England) and featuring drummer Tony Kiley (b. February 16, 1962), bassist Mick Anger (b. July 2, 1957), and saxophonist Neville Henry, broke through with the U.K. and U.S. Top 40 hit "Digging Your Scene" in 1986 and went on to place ten singles and four albums in the U.K. charts between 1986 and 1990. In the U.S., they are perhaps best known for the track "You Don't Own Me," which appeared on the multi-platinum soundtrack album Dirty Dancing in 1987. The band broke up in 1990 but reunited in 2007, touring and releasing the album Devil's Tavern the following year. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
