The Barracudas - I Can't Pretend

|

On this date in 1981, The Barracudas released their fifth single, "I Can't Pretend". It was backed by "The KGB (Made A Man Out Of Me)". The A side appeared on their debut album, Drop Out With The Barracudas. The B side did not but was added as a bonus track on the album when it was re-released on CD. Drummer Nick Turner went on to become an original member of Lords Of The New Church. The London band started as a surf punk band consisting of a Swiss guitarist (Robin Wills), a Canadian lead vocalist (Jeremy Gluck) and two Englishman (Nick Turner and David Buckley). Numerous lineup changes and a move away from the surf influence contributed to their demise and they were history by 1984, but they have re-formed in recent years. Drummer Nick Turner went on to become an original member of Lords Of The New Church.
