Teenage Archangel

Be-Bop Deluxe

single - 1973

Teenage Archangel - Cover


A)  Teenage Archangel

B)  Jets At Dawn



"Teenage Archangel" and "Jets at Dawn" (in the early version) were originally both non-album cuts - although the latter was re-recorded for Axe Victim (1974).


Teenage Archangel was the debut release by Be-Bop Deluxe, and Nelson's final independent release until "Do You Dream In Colour?" (1980). The single was issued in a plain white sleeve, and was a limited edition intended to be sold in Wakefield Record Bar and at local gigs.



The single would be re-pressed in 1979 and 1980 in limited pressings, but without the knowledge of the artist. Both tracks  appeared on the Postcards From the Future CD compilation (2004, now out of print).


The single is long deleted, but both tracks can be found on the Cherry Red/Esoteric Recordings reissue of Axe Victim (2020) - both in physical form and as a digital download.
