Alternative TV - The Ancient Rebels


On this date in 1981, Alternative TV released their sixth single, "The Ancient Rebels". It was backed by "Sleep In Dub". The A side appeared on their third studio album, Strange Kicks. The B side was a non-LP track. The punk/post-punk London band led by Mark Perry, founder of Sniffin' Glue magazine, had originally disbanded in 1979 and has re-formed on and off ever since.
