The Passions - The Swimmer


On this date in 1981, The Passions re-released their third single, "The Swimmer". It had originally been released in 1980. This time the song was backed by "Some Fun". The A side appeared on their second album, Thirty Thousand Feet Over China. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus when the album was re-released on CD. The London new wave band released three albums before disbanding in 1982. Original bassist Claire Bidwell left the band in 1980 to join The Wall.
