Artist Info

Cuban Boys

Cuban BoysPowered by Audioscrobbler™The Cuban Boys were a quartet of bedroom techno-popsters who appeared in the late '90s. After initially publicising themselves via a scam letter-writing campaign to the UK's TV text service Teletext, in which they sparked (and then fuelled) rumours that their home-made demos were the work of more famous artists such as Paul Weller and Liam Gallagher, the group gained much airplay on John Peel's BBC radio show. Key tracks include Oh My God They Killed Kenny (a mash-up of South Park samples and Do The Bump by '70s group Kenny, based on an idea by Teletext writer Stephen Eastwood - this tune was rated No.6 in Peel's Festive 50 for 1998) and Cognoscenti vs Intelligencia (a novelty Xmas 1999 hit also known as The Hamster Dance, which topped that year's Festive 50). They released one album, titled Eastwood (after the aforementioned journo) and also collaborated with Helen Love on the track Atomic Beat Boy. Members of the group have also recorded under the name Spray.

Founder members Ricardo Autobahn and Skreen B continue to make music under the Cuban Boys name, although Jenny McLaren (vocals) and Blu Thunder (guitar) are no longer involved. Read more on Last.fm.
