As we reported on Monday, Dexys Midnight Runners – or Dexys, as the band now prefer to be known – have started work on their new album, which is expected to be released in 2012.

But if you can't wait for half a year to hear more from Kevin Rowland he will be spinning tunes at cult indie night How Does It Feel To Be Loved? tonight at the Phoenix, Cavendish Square in the West End.

The enigmatic front man has manned the ones and twos for the club before and has given a stunning vocal PA each time... The club itself is a million miles away from student discos and the lager n'landfill nights of Camden Town, instead expect to hear a smart mix of Indie pop, Tamla motown, Northern soul, French pop, Girl groups and Sixties heartbreak.

Disclaimer: Occasionally at HDIF you may here music that could be considered "twee" and while the Quietus often frowns in the general direction of The Field Mice, even we are forced to admit that 'Convenience' by BOB is probably one of the greatest 7" singles ever released.
