BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

Combo Audio was a new wave group from Champaign-Urbana, Illinois best known for their song Romanticide.

Romanticide was released as a single for Secret Records in 1982 and as part of the Combo Audio EP. Two videos for the song were made. The first was played on the RockAmerica cable music subscription service the second went into “power rotation” on MTV in early 1983 following the EP release. The song was the “top single” in Billboard and regular support and airplay followed in New York, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis and Los Angeles.

The version that appears here is a different mix than what appears on the “Combo Audio” mini album and “Living In Oblivion” Volume 1 CD. The b-side “It’s A Crime” is a non album track.
