Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 89 – with Tear Of The Red Eye in Session

By |December 18th, 2017|0 Comments

Scott Marsden of Holyhead was in The Lizzies and Holy Coves, with the latter releasing the excellent album ‘Peruvian Mistake’.
A hiatus led to Tear Of The Red Eye being formed; more of a project and collaborations than a band. The single Scars came out earlier this year and Scott is now gearing up to record a full blown album and to tour.
Listen to his superb live session and the entire two hour show below (the last one of 2017). (website)

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 88 – with HATYM & Uncle Peanut in Session

By |December 11th, 2017|0 Comments

Here Are The Young Men & Uncle Peanut have just released their excellent second album ‘This Is The Standard Life’. So as Vukovar couldn’t get over Offa’s Dyke to perform in the studio it made perfect (non)sense to repeat the live session Uncle Peanut did for us last summer.

GIG REVIEW – Ho99o9, Kate Mo$$ @ The Deaf Institute, Manchester

By |December 10th, 2017|0 Comments


Another day, another trip to Manchester, almost an advent calendar of aural carnage to get through.  Had only seen Ho99o9 (pronounced Horror) for the first time here in town in the summer when they were on the way to stir up the mud of Glastonbury, but the punk/hiphop/electronic insanity was pretty stunning and well worth riding this cutting edge for once more.  They had actually been here supporting Papa Roach last month but more about that later….

Common Ground Festival Benefit @ The Peer Hat, Manchester

By |December 9th, 2017|0 Comments



Having missed the actual Common Ground Festival (formerly called The Dirty Weekend) in September through other commitments this was an opportunity for me to help chip in to the recovery of the losses that the festival made. The promoters here, and a lot of the attendees, know it’s exactly the kind of underground gathering they want to see continuing in the future.  So today almost seems a mini flavour of the main event, some of them having played the do down in Bristol, with a great selection of bands and the grin inducing messy mayhem of the alternative community get-together.
