Formed in a dark cave in the Blue Ridge Mountains, forged of Redneck and Steel
it was 1995 as the Sacred 3 came together, although Steve and Dave had been a musical pair since high school, Hoss (the artist formerly known as Mole) joined up in LaLa land, and immediately locked into history what was to be an amazing collection of talent and brotherhood.
The fat years of 1996 til 2000 featured a large quantity of Bread, Cheese and Alcohol, and tour bookings guaranteed to rid the earth of all crude oil. A magical time, making a lot of trouble and a little bit of music. Too loud you may say, well, Dave can’t hear you
The years past and change was in the air, after 2000 the band was on a long “break” until Dave James and Jan got together to record “Sufferboy” in 2008. After another healthy break Dave got some anti-freeze slipped into his coffee from a suspicious fan and a few hours later had recorded “Generation Vulture” in 2016.
Generation Vulture serves as a rebirth of a band that will not die, no matter how we try to kill it, over and over again
you can hear the essential building blocks of JUD in the new album as it features not only original low man Steve Cordrey on Bass, also features James Schmidt on drums (Chasing California/Sufferboy).
Now during the “Great Transiction of 2018” JUD has morphed into an even greater monster, and with the addition of mastermind and generally handsome chap Othy “Timmy” Rasta, original members Hoss Wright and David J. Clemmons are geared up for another few decades of fun.
JUD has made their place as a vital part of musical history, bringing sounds of Stoner and Prog together, with their Redneck touch and grass roots appeal, a legend to some, a joke to others, but you can’t keep a good band down.
JUD is written in stone
