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).[3] 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' tight guitar playing. They were quickly signed up by Mercury Records and by 1985 had released their first, eponymously titled album.[3] The album was a moderate success in the UK Albums Chart; while the single, "The Honeythief", made number 17 in the UK Singles Chart,[4] and also reached the Top 20 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Another song from the album, "Tinder", became well known in Scotland as the soundtrack to a McEwan's Lager commercial.

However the band failed to build on its success; McElhone left to found Texas, and by the time the second album Scratch the Surface was recorded, Travers had also left (to be replaced by Stephen Ferrera).[3] Released in 1989, the album was not as critically or commercially successful as its predecessor, and the band split up shortly afterwards.[3]

Skinner and Jones subsequently went on to found the band Witness, releasing the album "House Called Love" (A&M), before Skinner joined former members of Glasgow peers Love and Money in the band, Cowboy Mouth.[3]

Pim Jones later formed Big Yoga Muffin with Ange Dolittle, formerly of Eat, releasing one album Wherever You Go, There You Are (2000, The Echo Label).

In 2011, Grahame Skinner formed the band Skinner with Douglas MacIntyre (Love & Money, Cowboy Mouth and Sugartown), Gordon Wilson (Love & Money and Cowboy Mouth) and Andy Alston (Del Amitri).

In 2016 the band reformed to play two gigs at the Glasgow O2, ABC in November 2016 to support the re-release of their first album.
