Manicured Noise - Faith


On this date in 1980, Manicured Noise released their second single, "Faith". It was backed by "Freetime". The Manchester, England post punk band released two singles without an album to their credit (though a compilation was released years later). The band was fronted by Steven Walsh, formerly of Flowers Of Romance which also included at various times Sid Vicious (pre-Sex Pistols), Viv Albertine (pre-The Slits), Palmolive (pre-The Slits and The Raincoats) and Keith Levine (briefly The Clash and later, Public Image Ltd).
