But it was was a further 2 years before success began to come the Blow Monkeys way, with the release of their second studio album Animal Magic and in particular the single Digging Your Scene which peaked at number 12 in the UK singles chart, number 14 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and was equally successful across much of Europe. More chart success followed in 1987 with their third album She Was Only A Grocer's Daughter from which the single It Doesn t Have to Be This Way reached number 5 in the UK.......
