They released two singles in 1984, The Colour Field and Take , before the release of Thinking of You in January 85 took them into the UK Top 40, reaching number 12.

Elvis Belt
Formed in Leeds in 1986, CUD went on to forge one of the more interesting and indefinable sounds of the late 80s, early 90s Indie scene. Fusing a catchy pop sensibility with danceable grooves and intelligent and often humorous lyrics, they soon became firm independent favourites, very quickly catching the ear of John Peel and becoming a regular fixture of his broadcasts. Three quality singles into their career, the band secured a deal with Imaginary Records, where they continued a fine run of singles and eventually released their debut album. Capitalising on the band’s underground success, in June 1990 Imaginary followed this with this fantastic compilation of their early releases, topping several independent charts in the process and further establishing an already strong reputation. Some eighteen years later, Elvis Belt is updated and reissued here by Cherry Red, together with a wealth of rarities and unreleased tracks from those formative years and beyond. This release features the original album in its entirety, carefully re-mastered and now sitting comfortably alongside Elvis Handbag, an additional disc conceived by the band as a sister album to the original release and containing a number of further B-Sides, Peel Session recordings and cover versions including the band'slegendary take on Bohemian Rhapsody previously only available on the ultra-rare Alvin Lives in Leeds compilation. Our Price: £9.95
