Cud: Asquarius

John Robb, Select, August 1992

IN WHICH THE PERENNIAL UNDERDOGS go overground. In some ways Cud epitomise everything that's crap about guitar rock in 1992 — they're wilfully self-indulgent, deft eccentrics so swamped in parody that it's hard to pick out the real band anymore. A minimal success gets them into the back end of the charts.
