Spooner (Cruel School Ep + Where You Gonna Run ? Single)

A year or so ago I posted Spooner's second single "Where You Gonna Run" and I always intended on posting their first Ep, but never got around to it. Since that file is no longer available; I figured now is as good of time as any to repost it along with the first Ep Enjoy!
Spooner was a five piece from Madison Wisconsin that formed around 1978. Besides these records, they also have another single, as well as three full lengths to their credit. After Spooner, Doug Erikson, and Butch Vig, went on to form bands such as: Fire Town, and Garbage. Butch Vig produced bands such as: Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, and Sonic Youth, during the early 90's. If you would like to read more, check this site out.
