De La Soul: Bar Cuba, Macclesfield
Rob Chapman, MOJO, 1998

Walking into an already packed, monsoon-hot Bar Cuba at 5pm on a Sunday afternoon evoked a feeling of enforced reorientation that some of us old skool heads hadnt felt since seeking out soul all-dayers in provincial leisure centres in the mid-80s.
