Cud - Elvis Belt



Carter USM kick off a trio of gigs tonight and Eat Junk will be going to the London date as usual on Saturday.. First on the bill at Brixton are Cud, followed by Neds Atomic Dustbin, not bad for the price of one ticket I think you will agree

Originally released in 1990 on Imaginary Records, Elvis Belt was a compilation that gathered all of the Leeds-based band Cud's songs that preceded their first proper album, 1989's When in Rome, Kill Me. Gathering singles dating back to 1987's "Slack Time" with a pair of previously un issued tracks and Cud's contributions to a pair of Imaginary Records' trademark tribute albums (the Kinks' "Lola" and the Bonzo Dog Band's "I'm the Urban Spaceman," both flattened out and speeded up into near oblivion), Elvis Belt showcases the band's sardonic sense of humour and punk-derived D.I.Y. scrappiness in its earliest and crudest forms. By the time of When in Rome, Kill Me, the band had matured a bit lyrically and gained considerably more polish musically.
