Josef K - It's Kinda Funny


On this date in 1980, Josef K released their third single, "It's Kinda Funny". It was backed by "Final Request". The A side appeared on their debut album, The Only Fun In Town. The B side was a non-LP track. The A side reached the #12 spot on the U.K. indie singles chart. The Only Fun In Town was their debut release but not the first album they recorded. Due to the band's dissatisfaction with the results of their first recording, Sorry For Laughing, recorded in 1980, it was not released until 1990. The Edinburgh, Scotland post-punk band disbanded 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.
