Sham 69 - There's Gonna Be A Borstal Breakout


On this date in 1978, Sham 69 released their second single, "There's Gonna Be A Borstal Break-Out". The B side was "Hey Little Rich Boy". The B side appeared on their debut album, Tell Us The Truth. A live version of the A side also appeared on the album but the studio version did not. It was, however, added as a bonus track when the album was re-released on CD. The Hersham, England punk band disbanded in 1980 but re-formed in the late 80's and has been on and off ever since.
