Until recently I had never really listened to The Cudgels, who where just a band I associated with Whoosh and Whaaam! But then I found a site apparently created by themselves on MySpace. Their early sound, which is represented there, sort of lumps them together with other Dan Treacy-inspired indiepop bands of the early 90s such as The Bartlebees. But listening to their album God's Children, is a totally different story. Now they've gone psych and the sound reminds me of those two 14 Iced Bears albums. God's Children came out in 1992, one year after Wonder. There are still plenty of pop moments though, as on the brilliant song here. If you like you should head on over to the Waaah! site where you can download the rest of the album.
