Mike Rudd's 1st BASE in Crudd's Retrum-Spectro
1st BASE's repertoire is drawn from the occasionally confronting, often witty, but never less than intriguing catalogue of songs penned by Mike Rudd (and his alter-ego My Crudd) from the early '70s to the present day.
There are the singles of course, like the most famous of all Rudd's songs, I'll Be Gone (Someday I'll have money), followed by Murtceps' Esmeralda and Ariel's Jamaican Farewell, but most of the material is drawn from the albums such as Spectrum Part One and Milesago, Spectrum's alter-ego band The Indelible Murtceps' Warts Up Your Nose, Ariel's A Strange Fantastic Dream and Rock & Roll Scars.
There are the newer songs too, and now Mike has a new palette to play with in 1st BASE, perhaps we can anticipate new era of Rudd-songs to emerge.
In the meantime you can enjoy watching and listening to Mike Rudd's evolution from a well-established rock artist to singer/songwriter/raconteur playing an accessible version of his oeuvre with a couple of the best musicians around.
