Swell Maps - Let's Build A Car


On this date in 1980, Swell Maps released their fourth single, "Let's Build A Car". It was backed by "Big Maz In The Country" and "...Then Poland". None of the tracks appeared on a regular album. The Birmingham, England post punk band called it quits in 1980 after four singles and two albums (plus an EP giveaway with the first album). Brothers Epic Soundtracks and Nikki Sudden went on to solo careers. Both are now deceased.
