The Comsat Angels - Independence Day


On this date in 1980, Comsat Angels released their third 7-inch record, "Independence Day". It was backed by "We Were". The A side appeared on their debut album, Waiting For A Miracle. The B side was a non-LP track but it was added as a bonus track when the album was re-released on CD. The band re-corded and re-released the A side as a 7 inch and a 12 inch in 1983 and it reached the #71 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Sheffield, England post-punk/new wave band changed their name to the C.S. Angels later on due to some pressure from Comsat, the satellite company. They disbanded in 1995 with nine albums to their credit. Their bass player was Kevin Bacon. Not that Kevin Bacon.
