Altered Images - Dead Pop Stars


On this date in 1981, Altered Images released their debut single, "Dead Pop Stars". It was backed by "Sentimental". Neither track appeared on an album but both were added to their debut album, Happy Birthday, when it was re-released on CD. The single reached the #67 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Glasgow, Scotland new wave band disbanded in 1983 after three albums. Guitarist/bass player Johnny McElhone went on to form Hipsway.
