The Nightingales - Paraffin Brain


On this date in 1982, The Nightingales released their third single, "Paraffin Brain". It was backed by "Elvis, The Last Ten Days". Neither track appeared on an album but both were added to their debut album, Pigs On Purpose when it was re-released on CD. The Birmingham, England post punk band rose from the ashes of The Prefects, a punk band that included original Robert Lloyd, Paul Apperley, Eamonn Duffy and Joe Crow, all original members of The Nightingales. They disbanded in 1986 after three albums and numerous lineup changes. They have reunited and released new material.
