Josef K - Radio Drill Time


On this date in 1980, Josef K released their second single, "Radio Drill Time". It was backed by a live version of "Crazy To Exist". The studio version of the B side appeared on their first recorded album Sorry For Laughing (which was not released until 1990), and their first released album, The Only Fun In Town. The A side did not appear on a regular release. The single reached the #27 spot on the U.K. indie singles chart. The single was packaged as a double single with their labelmate Orange Juice ("Blue Boy"/"Love Sick"). The Edinburgh, Scotland band broke up in 1982 with just one album though posthumous releases would come out, including Sorry For Laughing.
Guitarist Malcolm Ross joined Orange Juice and then Aztec Camera. Drummer Ronnie Torrance joined Boots For Dancing. Vocalist Paul Haig went on to a moderately successful solo career.
