Scottish pop combo Hipsway was formed in 1984 by ex-Altered Images bassist Jon McElhone; also featuring vocalist Graham Skinner, guitarist Pim Jones and drummer Harry Travers, the group signed to Mercury and in mid-1985 issued their debut single "Broken Years." The follow-up, "Ask the Lord," appeared a few months later, but despite a strong promotional push Hipsway failed to garner much attention until scoring a hit early the following year with "Honey Thief." Their self-titled debut album also launched a fourth single, "Long White Car," but the band's chart success proved fleeting -- the second Hipsway album, 1989's Scratch the Surface, sold poorly and they disbanded soon after its release. Skinner and Jones later reunited as members of Witness. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
