The Screever- Vinyl & CD Single
“…..I’m just putting pretty colours on the ground”
Following on from my last blog I thought I’d carry on the INDIE MUSIC theme and introduce you to THE CUCKOOS; I know little about the band, other than the fact that they released this single in 1992 on the Imaginary Records Label. THE SCREEVER (English slang term for pavement artist) was released in several different formats 7 inch & 12 inch vinyl and 4 track CD EP.
The single was produced by The Cuckoos and Brian O’ Shaughnessy at Bark Studios.
Imaginary Records was an independent record label based in Heywood, Greater Manchester, England, which specialised mainly in indie rock and post-punk. It was created and owned by Alan Duffy. They released many independent records including BILL NELSON’S Luminous LP in 1991.
