After a hiatus, CUD are back in late 2013, with three huge, celebratory shows with our friends from the Midlands, Ned's Atomic Dustbin in Leeds, London and Birmingham. If you were lucky enough to make it to the Wolverhampton Civic Hall in December 2012 to see us, you'll know there'll be heaving moshpits ahead. Tickets are available now. Visit out Facebook page (see right) for details. And this is just the start. Watch out for further announcements in the coming months.

New bass player!


1 Dec 2012

Matt joins CUD

Well, not quite. Ned's Atomic Dustbin have more bass players than they need, so fulfilling a childhood dream Matt Cheslin joined us to play Strange Kind of Love at Wolverhampton Civic Hall prior to the Ned's headline set.
We are starting to get a reputation for inviting guests aboard. Anyone want to take over singing duties?
Some great shots of the night, as above, from Paul Broome, here.

Andrew Collins at Carter

Well, not quite. Some 21 years after he took drumming duties for us at a soundcheck in Wakefield, former NME journo, book writer and reviewer, Andrew Collins joined us again, sitting in for Gogs to play Rich and Strange in front of a capacity crowd at our Brixton Academy show with Carter. Read his blog about the night here.

The incomplete BBC sessions!

Marc Riley 6Music

Looks like we'll need a Volume 2. Thanks to Marc Riley for inviting us on his BBC6Music show this month for a live session. We recorded three classics for his show (Purple Love Balloon, Robinson Crusoe and I've Had It WIth Blondes) and one for Gideon Coe, broadcast later (Rich and Strange).

Kats Karavan


Nov 7 2009

 

If it hadn't been for John Peel, a CUD band post 1987 would have been very unlikely, and certainly less heard of. Being invited to record our first session in 1987 was a surprise and honour, as is being invited to be part of the new 4-CD collection, Kats Karavan –The History of John Peel on the Radio.
As you'd expect from an artifact attempting to replicate something of the great man's taste, the selection of bands is eclectic, and all the better for it. You won't find some of the bigger names that Peel 'discovered'. (The Smiths and Weddoes are noticeable for their absence) but it's a wonderful souvenir of 40 years of inspired music. Seek it out.
