Introducing Dragons - The Pooka 7"



Another gift from bX-59cppw.
Never heard of this band/record before but it's really interesting. Hard to describe too but it has that early UK postpunk sound we all love.
Released on the obscure Wycombe label Zebre/Zebra sometime in between 1987 and 1989.
The third release is a 7" by indie band Home And Abroad in 1989. The second release is still a mystery.

Hi Michael, hope you're doing fine. Don't think they released anything else. Was unknown to me before bX-59cppw sent it to me.

Hello Michael, i'm afraid that unless the band members themselves (or their friends from back then),
spot the post here and provide some info,
then that will remain a...mystery, as there is absolutely nothing mentioned in the 7" itself regarding who they were... :-/
I'd really love to find in what other projects these musicians were involved...

Don't think they made an album. I can remember buying this from a friend at school (Dr Challoner's Grammar School in Amersham, where I think Toby Newton went) in 1981/2. There were a number of local bands self-releasing singles - my favourite is Exit Smiling's "The Sky is a Limit", from about the same time (possibly on the same label)

Thanks for the info. Searched the net for that Exit Smiling 7" but nothing came up. Must be pretty obscure.
