A Cub Koda Story

I told him I would rather be Cub Koda...
Just hit your great web site. Thank you so much. Cub was a god to me; Brownsville
Station was an institution! I just ordered “SCHOOL PUNKS”,
which I believe is one of the best 10 records ever made. I waited for this
to come out for years. Cub influenced my playing, I am Sonic Mike Stephens
from Phoenix, AZ Punk legends, THE RED SQUARES. Yep, we were a three piece
with stacks of amps, fueled by beer and a love of all root rock n’ roll.
John Dixon, a DJ in Phoenix gave me the Sonic Mike nick-name after a gig
in 1980. He told me that I sounded like Fred “Sonic” Smith
of the MC5, and the name stuck. I told him I would rather be Cub Koda and
Thanks so much for the memories. God rest your soul, Cub
