Dr.Chud. That name
alone strikes fear and disgust to those unlucky enough to know
it. Who is he? Where did he come from? Well I am going to try
and piece together his checkerd and quite bloody past. Most
of you have heard of the abominable Doctor due to the 6 years
he spent with the legendary punk rock group known as
but there is far more to this story than that. On April 4th,
1964 this world was unfortunate enough to witness the birth
of Chud, named after the movie that would be made some 20 years
later with the acronym Canniblistic Humanoid Underground Drummer!.
started his professional musical career as the
lead skin beater for
KIDNEY and the PULSATIONS.
For 8 years he terrozied audiences with the Pulsations until the
band broke away and Chud latched onto SARDONICA
featuring the legendary Sal Bee and Fish. The band was sort of
a warm up of things to come. Playing hard hitting horror rock
fit Chud well and when the call came from Jerry Only of The Misfits
for Chud to join up, he answered back with a affirimative "yes".
took time for The Misfits to actually be The Misfits so
during a drawn out and complicated battle between the bands original
singer Glenn Danzig and Jerry as to who really owns the band's
name, Chud started a side-project known as "SACRED
TRASH ". Chud wrote, played guitar and even
sang on the bands debut and only release known simply as "Sacred
Trash". The band would not last long sadly enough as Jerry had
gained The Misfits name and things began to move in a horrificly
saw a nation-wide "ressurection tour" and almost immediatly following
that tour Dr. Chud, Jerry Only, Doyle & Michale were in the studio
recording the bands first record in roughly 20 years for Geffen
Records. The record was to be called "American Psycho" and featured
quite a few songs penned by Dr. Chud. 2 years, numerous tours,
(with acts like Megadeth, Marilyn Manson & Anthrax to name a few),
singles, and a live record totaly overseen by Chud passed. Then
the group hit the studio again this time for RoadRunner Records,
and the album was "Famous Monsters". About the same time Chud
and fellow Misfit Jerry Only recorded "1969" with JOEY
RAMONE for a Iggy Pop tribute record "They Will Fall",
the track was later used on the late Joey Ramone's solo record
entitled "Don't Worry About Me".
6 years with the group, 2 studio records, 1 live recording, appearnces
in such hit films as "Animal Room", "Bruiser", "Campfire Stories"
and "Big Money Hustlas", and even time spent as a WCW wrestler,
Dr. Chud walked away to form a new group. (After there depature
however the Misfits released "Cuts From The Crypt" on RoadRunner
Records, a collection rareities and unreleased tracks. CHUD's
newest band would be known as "GRAVES"
and it was off the ground almost 1 year later to the date that
Chud left The Misfits (10/25/00). Within 1 years time the group
arranged 2 nation-wide tours. Immediatly following the 1st tour
known as "Web Of Dharma (Stand 1)" the band hit the studio to
record a CD of the same name. Chud produced and distributed the
record through his own "GDU Records" named after the fan club
(GraveDiggersUnion) of the band, the second leg of the "Dharma"
tour took place in 2002 and the band disbanded shortly after causing
mass panic and chaos as to what the Doc would be doing next.
It's 2003 and his antidote for punk rock terror known as "DRCHUDS_X-WARD"
explodes across the U.S. and Canada! IT'S ALIVE ! IT"S ALIVE
