The Blow Monkeys are a British New Wave band that formed in 1981 as a New Wave-oriented act. The first single, "Live Today Love Tomorrow" was released in 1982. They subsequently recorded more commercial pop rock hit makers, and finally became a dance group, shortly before splitting up at the beginning of the 1990s. They broke through with the UK and US Top 40 hit "Digging Your Scene", which hit #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August, 1986. They went on to place eleven singles and four albums in the UK charts between 1986 and 1990. In late 2007, the original band members reunited, releasing a new album and going on tour in 2008.
