The Cuban Heels (Downtown Single)

Here's another re-post  from 1/16/10; includes new rips, and scans.
     If fast PopPunk covers, and sizzling Hi hats are your thing, then check this record out. This one smokes!!!
    After Glasgow punk band Johnny & the Self Abusers broke up, half the band formed The Simple Minds. The other half formed The Cuban Heels. Within four months of the break, the Heels released this gem. For their next outing they set up their own label, Cuba Libre, to release the Walk on Water single in 1980. Paul Armour left, and was replaced by Nick Clarke in time for the 1981 singles Sweet Charity and My Colours Fly; the LP Work Our Way to Heaven was also out by the end of the year, as well as a single in support of it.

Line up -

John Malarky - Vocals
Paul Armour - Bass
Laurie Cuffe - Guitar
Davie Duncan - Drums

I couldn't find much about him except he spent some time with The Berlin Blondes.
