Blancmange - Irene & Mavis


On this date in 1980, Blancmange released their debut EP, Irene & Mavis. The EP contained the songs, "Disco-A-Bomb-Bomb", "Holiday Camp", "Overspreading Art Genius", "Concentration Baby", "Just Another Spectre" and "Modichy In Aneration". None of the tracks would be released separately as a single nor were any included on their debut album, Happy Families. It wasn't long before this duo would start to chart regularly in the U.K. The London new wave band broke up in 1986 after three albums. They got back together in 2006.
