The Cuban Heels - Downtown


On this date in 1978, The Cuban Heels released their debut single, "Downtown". It was backed by "Do The Smok Walk". Neither track appeared on their debut album, Work Our Way To Heaven. The Glasgow, Scotland post punk band was formed when Johnny and The Self-Abusers disbanded. John Malarkey formed The Cuban Heels and released one album and several singles, the last one in 1981. Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill formed Simple Minds. They, of course, lasted a lot longer.
