The Flashcubes: Sportin' Wood Goes Stateside

The US edition of The Flashcubes tribute to Roy Wood sports a differing reverse sleeve to the Japanese issue
#671: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! I had a pleasant surprise at the weekend when Paul Armstrong, who hails from Nuneaton, and is guitarist and vocalist with ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommended artist The Flashcubes - contacted Yours Truly KJS regarding the forthcoming US edition of their excellent album "Sportin' Wood". The album was originally successfully issued in Japan two years ago and ELOBF was on hand to both review it and interview Paul's fellow Flashcube band mate Gary Frenay (Lead vox/bass). You can read both ELOBF articles via these links thus:

"Sportin' Wood" (US Edition) will be released on Thursday 6th March via Northside Records and is priced at $12 (plus P+P). The CD can be ordered either by email (payment to Paul Armstrong via PayPal) at or by post (cheque) to: Northside Records, 1420 Boston-Providence Highway, Suite #275, Norwood, MA 02062, USA. Customers outside of the US should add $5 to cover post and packing costs.

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends "Sportin' Wood" (US Edition) by The Flashcubes to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff LynneRoy WoodWizzardThe Move'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 03-March-2014
