The Punk” b/w “Foxy Bitch” was released as a single in 1977 prior to the release of Bad Girl in 1978. Both were issued only in the UK on RCA. A rare dual-label promo of “The Punk” was also released in Italy with Vanilla’s “The Punk” on the B-side and Stiff Records’ “Sex, Drugs and Rock ’n’ Roll” by Ian Dury on the A-side. None of these releases was commercially successful, but Vanilla soldiered on, releasing a follow-up LP, Venus D’Vinyl in 1978. Nearly as good as Bad Girl, it also failed to chart―and it would be twenty-four years before her next release, Blue Roses.
