SONG OF THE DAY Thee Ludds – Go Outside

Leicester’s finest purveyors of psych-punk, Thee Ludds, struck a chord in my heartstrings from the very moment I first heard them earlier this month, and their rather dark and menacing punkadelic sounds have been pleasuring my ears ever since!! Emerging with a … Continue reading
