Many years ago a frizzy haired young man used to turn up at gigs in manchester filming everything, he said he was going to put a band together and we became vague friends.

The band was Cud.

before this he leant us the world’s most grim video- a 35 minute film of the train journey from Middlesborough to Stockton- no-one in the world was interested in it but it became a firm favourite round our house and watched endlessly till it got bizarrely stolen. It featured a dour faced young man wearing an Elvis belt buckle slumped on train seat for the whole journey.

CUD are a British indie rock band formed in Leeds, England in 1986. CUD consisted of Carl Puttnam, Mike Dunphy, William Potter and Steve Goodwin. CUD disbanded in 1995 and reformed in 2006 after the release of their Anthology. Though an indie rock band, their music incorporated elements of funk and pop. They were critically acclaimed throughout their career, supported the Pixies and recorded many sessions with the late John Peel.

Despite several top 40 singles and albums, CUD never really broke through to a mainstream UK record-buying audience and remain as one of the most underrated bands from the British music scene in the last 20 years. Sexy rhythms and memorable sparky lyrics. The music press hated them, the fan’s couldn’t get enough of em! In 2006, Cud reformed to support the release of a double album of their greatest hits entitled Rich and Strange – The Anthology which was released in August 2006 on Universal Records, alongside a brief UK tour to promote it. Further shows occurred in 2008 and 2010, however, this tour sees CUD back with original guitarist and songwriter Mike Dumphy for the first time since 1995, they will also be joined by ”Ëœa drummer from CUD’.

In conjunction with this tour a boxset of the band’s Peel Sessions will be released

  2. Can’t make awareness on your Aircraft, they just don’t go an effective the offensive player, let alone bearing in mind obtaining Only two crimes.

  4. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that genuinely understands what they are discussing online. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to check this out and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you definitely have the gift.

  5. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  6. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  7. Maintain the excellent job mate. This web blog publish shows how well you comprehend and know this subject.
