Scottish pop-rock band Hipsway was formed in Glasgow in 1984 by ex-Altered Images guitarist Johnny McElhone on bass, and featuring Grahame Skinner, Pim Jones and Harry Travers. Their music was characterised by Skinner’s deep vocals and Jones’ tight guitar playing and by 1985 had released their first, eponymously-titled album.
They reformed to play a few gigs around Scotland to support the re-release of their first album. The gigs were a huge success, proving that an appetite remained for the band. Now with their freshly recorded new album – Smoke and Dreams – Hipsway take to the road with their new material along with the classics.
