The Bollock Brothers - The Act Became Real


On this date in 1981, The Bollock Brothers released their debut single, "The Act Became Real". It was backed by "The Actor (Dub-Le)" (which was a dub version of the A side). It was a 12 inch single. The A side appeared on their 1983 debut studio album, The Last Supper. The band started out as a side project for 4" Be 2", the London post punk band whose members included Jimmy Lydon (John's brother). He did not last in The Bollock Brothers but the band continued on and is still recording and performing today.
