Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!
If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off

Cuba - Furtive winks (1980)

b/w - Valkyrie of love

For those of you that regularly visit Shotgun solution you will already have read the sad news that David Parkinson has passed away.

You may say who! but this man has left some great music behind (be it in his writing, producing or playing keyboards)

Cuba were

Josie Kennington (voc)
Basil Snaith (guitar voc)
Bob Marsden (bass voc)
Phil Parkin (drums)
Dave Parkinson (keyboard)

If you want to know more about cuba & the proposed 2nd 45 (Wireless World / Frankie - recorded for Ariola, but was it ever released) see Wool City Rocker #8

  1. Where did this one come from? Cracking single - cheers again Bruce!

  2. Hi, just found your site and this link after plugging in Cuba for nostalgic reasons. Very sad to learn that David had passed away, I used to work with his (then) girlfriend around the time that he got his record deal and then released this fabulous - and sadly one off - single. It was all very exciting and a great record. Many thanks for sharing, replaces my scratchy old vinyl!
