The Bureau - Only For Sheep


On this date in 1981, The Bureau released their debut single, "Only For Sheep". It was backed by "The First One". Both tracks appeared on their self-titled debut album. The single reached the #6 spot on the Australian singles chart but did not chart at home. The Birmingham, England new wave band was formed by ex-members of Dexys Midnight Runners (Mick Talbot, Steve Spooner, Stoker, Geoff Blythe and Pete Williams) with additional musicians and released two singles and one album before disbanding in 1981. They have recently reunited.
