Cud were a British indie rock band formed in Leeds, England in 1987, consisting of vocalist Carl Puttnam (born Ilford, Essex), guitarist/keyboardist Mike Dunphy (b. Northumberland), bassist William Potter (b. Derby), and drummer Steve Goodwin (b. Croydon, Surrey). Though an indie rock band, their music incorporated elements of funk. They were critically acclaimed throughout their career, but never broke through to a mainstream UK record-buying audience. Perhaps this was in part due to their eccentric lyrical concerns, which occasionally led to their dismissal as somewhat of a “joke” band. CUD are also regarded by some 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!

    Massively massively underrated. As a West Yorkshire teenager in the early nineties this lot were part of my essential soundtrack, shame hardly anyone outside the Leeds/Bradford/Manchester area seemed to have heard of the nutters until Asquarius brought them a little overdue attention.

    "Magic" is just simply a stunning song. The Indie Top 20 series of albums threw up many classics, this is just another beauty!

    I loved the "When In Rome, Kill Me" album. I'd almost forgotten what a great band they were :)

    Went to see the Cud farewell tour in Glasgow last night and they were amazing. The new guitarist was really good and has the finest beard I have ever seen.
