Notes About the Release
Tucked deep into the wilds of Wisconsin’s Dairyland, Cuca Records was the custom recording and pressing outfit for the Badger state. From its opening in 1959 to the end in 1973, Jim Kirchstein recorded nearly 2000 sides ranging from polka and gospel to country and R&B, and issued over 1000 45s on his Sara, Night Owl, Polka Dot, Top Gun, Psalms, Lucky Leprechaun, Jolly Dutchmen, Sounds of Wisconsin, Age of Aquarius, Banana, Citation, Butternut, Dee Jay, and American imprints.

If you won your high school Battle of the the Bands in Wisconsin in the 60s, you probably recorded a demo tape at Cuca Records as your grand prize. Spare Parts is a collection of teen garage, sunshine pop, surf, and whatever else you played in your parent’s garage.
