Ultravox - Vienna


On this date in 1981, Ultravox released their tenth single, "Vienna". It was backed by "Passionate Reply". The 12 inch added "Herr X". The A side appeared on their fourth album, Vienna. The additional tracks did not, though both were added as bonus tracks when the album was re-released on CD. The single reached the #2 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London post punk/new wave band lasted until 1987. They re-formed in 1992 and released two albums before shutting it down again in 1996.

One of the shows is being recorded for DVD release. There have been some excellent reviews and the clips on youtube are amazing. Looks like a great show with obscure tracks and so on. I just hope they take it further afield, and also record some new material.
