CUD - LEGGY MAMBO LP
Limited to 500 numbered copies pressed on frosted clear coloured vinyl with printed inner sleeve and presented in a gatefold sleeve with new artwork by Carl Puttnam
Following the release of their debut When In Rome, Kill Me and
1990’s Elvis Belt compilation , Leeds Indie heroes CUD set to work
on their next album for Imaginary Records. Recorded during the
Summer of 1990, Leggy Mambo proved to be a step in all the right
directions, cementing the sound developed over their previous
releases and capitalising on the bands pop sensibilities to provide
their most immediately accessible collection of songs to date.
Produced by XTC’s Dave Gregory and released in October 1990, the
album spawned the well-received singles Robinson Crusoe and Magic
(both making the UK top 100 which might have achieved greater success had they been released on a larger label) and generated a huge amount of industry interest, eventually leading to their signing with A & M the following year.
Cud went onto have 3 UK top 40 hit singles and a top 40 album
