The Nightingales - Idiot Strength


On this date in 1981, The Nightingales released their debut single, "Idiot Strength". It was backed by "Seconds". Neither track appeared on an album. The Birmingham, England post punk band rose from the ashes of The Prefects, a punk band that included original Nightingales members Robert Lloyd, Paul Apperley, Eamonn Duffy and Joe Crow. The Nightingales disbanded in 1986 after three albums and numerous lineup changes. They have reunited and released new material since.
