Cud were my first experience of going to watch a band. Not exactly shoegazing stuff but it was a good first time.
They had a novelty band label that that held them back. This was partly due to Hot Chocolate and Jethro Tull covers. The ‘drummer from Cud’ was tagged as a Keith Moon for a generation, but the NME used the tag as the epitome of obscurity. I was so impressed that I brought a ‘Magic’ t-shirt.
For those who don’t know; DLERC are like (but not exactly like) the initials of one of Carl Puttman’s former girlfriend. Maybe the song is not exactly about her? Or maybe DLERC fits the lyrics better.
