The Skuds remain one of my favorite early Texas punk bands. Two studio songs, one live tape, and three minutes of 8mm are the only material I've been able to dig up. Despite the poor sound quality, I never tire of listening to the live set at DJ's. Wild Child Records never got around to releasing the planned Skuds 7in., and, as you can well imagine, the concerns about stardom proved unfounded. Platinum Paul, hairless from head to toe from chemo, eventually died. No one from back then remembers band members' real names. Any leads or information concerning the Skuds would be sincerely appreciated.
