    Dr Mary Sullivan BainDo You Know Black HistoryBackatcha

    WOW! What can we say? This incredible reissue has completely floored us here at Sound of the Universe!

    This obscure, proto-techno bomb was recorded in Miami in 1985 by a school teacher and originally released as a self-published single for educational purposes, copies of ‘Do You Know Black History’ did not circulate much further than Florida’s public school libraries and the record has been shrouded in mystery up until now.

    Clear is that Mary Sullivan Bain was thinking outside of the box on this one - light years ahead! Check the superb instrumental version - essential purchase!
