X - Adult Books


On this date in 1978, X released their debut single, "Adult Books". It was backed by "We're Desperate". Both tracks appeared on their second album, Wild Gift, but they were re-recorded versions. The original single version of the A side was added to their debut, Los Angeles, and the original single version of the B side was added as a bonus track on the second album when they were re-released on CD. The Los Angeles punk band disbanded in 1993 but has performed occasionally since with its original lineup.
