The Freshies - Wrap Up The Rockets


On this date in 1981, The Freshies released their tenth record, a single fronted by "Wrap Up The Rockets". It was backed by "Gonna Get Better". Neither track appeared on an album because the band did not produce any. Numerous singles and a few EP's but no albums from the Manchester, England punk/power pop band by the time they disbanded in 1982. Compilations of their material were released posthumously.
