10/10 Brian Doublehorrendous Customer review,
Cud were celebratory in the face of all the late 80s po face indie shamblers, completely at odds with the introverted leeds 'indie' scene. They were the first real 'underground' band i ever saw & the first time i ever got my pint knocked out of my hand by a rabid bunch of chubby flat top sporting moshers. They were a party band, funky, wonky & thrilling with a singer bearing the tonsils of a rock god, the unlikely charisma of a ginger, bespectacled lothario, a bass player with THE FUNK (& the looks), a cool as a cucumber drummer sporting a plastic bobbys helmet & a guitarist who just made red stripe my fave tipple for years he was so effortlessly blase in his casual axe hacking style. A stage invasion inneviatably ensued, they played the Duchess of York (RIP) 2 more times after that, leaving eager queues stretching round the block every time they announced a gig. They got banned before the Autumn this album came out as the pub was nearly demolished in the scrum of May 1989. Leeds best kept secret were scorned by the Manchester obsessed NME but were SO adored in West Yorkshire you felt like a million dollars evertime you bought their new record or attended one of their delightful extravaganzas. They are also a swell bunch of folk & Carl 'vox god' Puttnam even took time to help a beleagured Phil pack records for the fledling Norman records back in the late 90s. This album still sounds as fresh, original, catchy & exhilarating as ever so just buy it & make them stars (again!) 10/10
