Don't Give Up  

 This was a weird score to make in backwoods Northern California, a rare'ish UK boogie 12" that I would have thought would have been limited to those lucky enough to come across it in an East London charity shop or hanging up on a record store wall in plastic, priced in euros somewhere, but who am I to argue with divine providence, I'll take it.

 Claudia put out a couple of funk singles on the Ilford, Essex based Rhythmic Records, an obscure new wave punk label run by the members of British industrial band Portion Control. I had heard Don't Give Up (Your Love) before on some mixtape and its around on the internet, but hadn't heard the more electro sounding B side, Do You Wanna Dance With Me, before anywhere, so it might be it's first appearance on digital, who knows.

    thank you for this post.
    The b-side "Do You Wanna Dance With Me" is quite a nice treat.
    It seems Claudia has recorded a cover of Nena's 99 Luftballons, which I would love to hear, but I can't seem to find it on the internet.
    Any clues?

    lmao at the picture. Don't Give Up is a great record from Claudia. Wanna Dance isn't too shabby either.

    Do You Wanna Dance, I heard Mike from Future Times play on his NTS show. I bought it after that show. Both sides are great. Cheers dude!
