Purple Hearts - Jimmy


On this date in 1980, Purple Hearts released their third single,
"Jimmy". It was backed by "What Am I Gonna Do?". The A side appeared on their debut album, Beat That! The B side was left off but was added as a bonus track when the album was re-released on CD. The punk/mod revivalist band from Essex, England released six singles and one album before disbanding in 1982. They briefly re-formed a few years later to release an album and a single but their reunion was short-lived. Reunion plans are ongoing.
