Released today in 1982: War Child

Chrysalis CHS2624

Smash Hits’s advice to its readers regarding this single was: “Pass very quickly.”

“The second song to be prised off The Hunter and Blondie sound as uninterested as they did on Island Of Lost Souls,” the review stated. “A muddy production full of chattering percussion and moody horns are offset by Debbie’s dangerously romantic words about the world’s battle zones.”

One week after the single checked out of the chart, its parent album did likewise. In the US, War Child never made it to 45rpm.
