Label: RED WIG / OPAL TAPES / ET MON CUL C'EST DU TOFU
Release date: 26.10.2018
Sometimes you catch something unexpected which resets a switch, excites and engages.The latest release from D.U.D.S. is a deepening of the sinister sonic territory they have been exploring, in various forms, since they formed. Bass lines and percussion lope through the undergrowth while jagged guitars pierce the ears. Then there’s the brass section, which works less as a means of driving home a song’s point, than as a warning that whatever comes next is unlikely to be anything you expect.
Shot straight outta the smoky canons of the northern paunch, Duds' latest LP is a boiler-suited belter... Post-punk is alive and well.
