7.30pm  CUD + Wax Tree Cast – AA. 

Emerging from the same art/design cauldron that produced fellow Leeds legends Soft Cell, Scritti Politti, and The Mekons, CUD were the pre-Britpop answer to doleful shoegazing bands – fun-loving, light-hearted, romantic and downright catchy.


Strong support comes from Wax Tree Cast, shortly to be seen at Kendal Calling and other festivals this summer. Buy a ticket.
