A Tonic for the Troops is the second album by The Boomtown Rats. It was released in 1978 and included the hit singles "She's So Modern", "Like Clockwork" and "Rat Trap". The album peaked at No. 8 in the UK Albums Chart in 1978. The album featured dark themes in an often upbeat, pop-punk style. One of the album's tracks, "(I Never Loved) Eva Braun", was described by one critic as "the happiest, cheeriest, best upbeat song about Hitler ever written.

She's So Modern" is a song by The Boomtown Rats.

Ensign Records released A Tonic For The Troops in the UK in June 1978. Columbia Records took over The Boomtown Rats from Mercury, replaced "Can't Stop" and " The Normal People" with "Mary Of The 4th Form" and "Joey's On The Street Again" from the first album, resequenced the tracks, and delayed the American release until February 1979.

A Tonic For The Troops ‎(LP, Album). A Tonic For The Troops ‎(8-Trk, Album). This second album retains the drive, energy and humour of the first, with a much more polished sound and 'complete' feel to it. Put aside any bias of 'the persona of Bob' - this definitely stands the test of time and well worth a listen. Reply Notify me Helpful. Marketplace 0 167 For Sale from €. 3.
