Alternative TV - The Force Is Blind


On this date in 1979, Alternative TV released their fifth single, "The Force Is Blind". It was backed by "Lost In Room". It was a posthumous release as the band had just broken up. Neither track appeared on an album but both were added to their debut, The Image Has Cracked, when it was re-released on CD. The punk/post-punk London band led by Mark Perry, founder of Sniffin' Glue magazine, disbanded in 1979 and has re-formed on and off ever since.
