DUDS are a super tight, self-contained four piece - centred on sharp bursts of rhythmical energy and intelligent musicianship. Hailing from Manchester and forming in early 2015, they have made consistent progress towards a distinctive, future-sound.
The songs, though varied in scope, have a sound that can only be described as DUDS. Their lyrics comment on the human condition and arbitrary, sometimes strange scenarios or themes.
Keeping busy, "Wet Reduction" is their third release this year. Their two acclaimed self-released EPs "NLP" and "Unfit for Work" have received radio play and generated much interest in the group.
Recorded to tape at Kraak Gallery, one of Manchester’s most notorious art spaces, the "Wet Reduction" EP flows as a disjointed journey through the hands of it’s creators and reflects the industrial environment that helped to mould it’s manifestation.
Influences include James Chance, Beefheart and Post Punk.
