Thompson Twins - Runaway


On this date in 1982, Thompson Twins released their eighth single, "Runaway". It was backed by "Open Your Eyes". The A side appeared on their second album, Set, but it was a reworked version. The B side was a non-LP track that was added to the album as a bonus when it was re-released on CD. The band was a seven piece act during this recording. The London new wave band would achieve a lot of commercial success when pared down to three members. They disbanded in 1993.
