Thompson Twins - In The Name Of Love


On this date in 1982, Thompson Twins released their seventh single, "In The Name Of Love". It was backed by "In The Beginning". The A side was on their second album, Set. The B side was a non-LP track. The A side also appeared on their U.S. debut album, In The Name Of Love. Despite heavy rotation in the clubs, the single failed to chart on either side of the Atlantic but chart recognition was not far off for the band. The London new wave band would achieve a lot of commercial success when pared down to three members from their origin as a loarger sized band. They disbanded in 1993.
