The Pretenders - Brass In Pocket


On this date in 1979, The Pretenders released their third single, "Brass In Pocket". It was backed by "Nervous But Shy" and an instrumental called "Swinging London". Only the A side appeared on their self-titled debut album. The other two tracks were non-LP tracks. The single reached the #1 spot on the U.K. singles chart and the #14 spot on the U.S. singles chart. The Hereford, England punk/new wave band, fronted by Ohio-raised Chrissie Hynde, is still performing.
