One of the latter Cud singles and still has all the quirky breezy things included that has made this band a consistent listen for the last two decades, From the criminally unnoticed album Showbiz, the title track is easily one of my favourites. Cud at their most melodic. With Carl Puttnam’s vocals not leading, but accompanying the musical arrangement. It is right up there with Robinson Crusoe and Hey Boots.
My Need to Hurry is much more urgent, with snappy guitar riffs. But the keyboards in the chorus give a more contented broader groove. The final track Ski Bum, is a thrashy breathless closer, giving William Potter, Steve Godwin and Mike Dunphy a chance to attack their instruments in this frenetic ender. This is the original CD single, later versions had My Keyhole Don’t Keep Secrets Anymore included.
