Not much news about Hipsway other than the fact that they are a Scottish band formed in 1984 by former Altered Images guitarist Johnny McElhone. Which will be joined by Graham Skinner, Pim Jones and Harry Travers.
Group with ephemeral existence and which will remain mainly in the musical history of the Eighties for the title "The Honeythief" released in 1986 and which will know a nice planetary success that year there.
For the record, it is the same McElhone who will also form in 1986 another small group better known under the name of… Texas!
As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.
To discover or rediscover.

1985 ... a first quality title which shows at the outset that this group is surely not there to make the figuration. We look forward to the rest ...
1985 ... a first year of existence which allows the group to break in and especially to gain notoriety. For the big fireworks display, we'll have to wait a little longer ...
1986 ... then THIS title comes ! The title of the consecration which allows them to obtain the biggest success of their career and to enter at the same time in the musical legend of the 80s. HU-GE !
1986 ... unfortunately, they will not be able to ride the wave created by the previous huge success and the rest will prove to be much more complicated to manage than expected ...
1989 ... big air hole of 3 years and return in a quite modest form. Race results : final end of the adventure ....
