Hipsway are a Scottish pop/new wave band. The band was formed in Glasgow in 1984 by ex-Altered Images guitarist Johnny McElhone on bass, and featuring Grahame Skinner (vocals), Pim Jones (guitar) and Harry Travers (drums). Skinner and Travers had been members of the band Kites with Paul McGrath and Ian McGreevy before Hipsway formed. Their music was characterized by Skinner's deep vocals and Jones' rhythmic guitar style.

The Scottish band Hipsway scored - briefly - in the . with the 1986 Top 20 hit "The Honeythief," a catchy pop nugget that, unfortunately, solidified the band's status as a one-hit wonder. The Honeythief" was an A-1 single, however, combining R&B influences with a European sensibility in the same manner as Living in a Box and Go West. Predictably, the rest of the material on Hipsway fails to match the quality of its sole hit tune.

Hot Shot Records via Cherry Red). Deluxe CD. Out Now., 10. Scottish pop funk-rock band give the deluxe treatment to their debut album. Hipsway should have been HUGE. Their unmistakable sound – a fusion between pop, funk, jazz and Indie guitar twang – had all the ingredients to make them massive, and they were close, so close
