CUD - ROBINSON CRUSOE (Imaginary), NEW FAST AUTOMATIC DAFFODILS - FISHES EYES (Play It Again Sam)
I once interviewed Cud on the phone, and they talked for a very long time about how they're always in the indie charts and yet scandlously ignored by the music press etc etc... I ended up agreeing with them it was a disgraceful stats of affairs but hearing this jerky, ostentatiously wacky look-we-can't-play-funk effort now, ignoring Cud appears a wholly admirable policy. Bogshed with a slide guitar. Worse than Devo. Yuk.
I eagerly expected punky abrasion from New FADS, which meant this mild saunter disappointed me considerably It's not bad or anything, it's just that so many of this weeks singles seem to amble proficiently. Nobody's going anywhere fast, or balancing on a knife edge. Oh yeah, and "Fishes Eyes" needs a decent hook, ho ho ho!
