Ultravox - The Thin Wall


On this date in 1981, Ultravox released their twelfth single, "The Thin Wall". It was backed by "I Never Wanted To Begin". The A side appeared on their fifth album, Rage In Eden. The B side was a non-LP track but was added as a bonus when the album was re-released on CD. The single reached the #14 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London post punk/new wave band lasted until 1987. They re-formed in 1992 (sort of...with limited connection to the classic lineups) and released two albums before shutting it down again in 1996. They have performed again recently.
