History[Edit]Edit

In 1974 the band had commercial success in the European charts and scored in that year three number-one hits in the two charts of NetherlandsDyna-miteTiger feetand Lonely this Christmas. In the National hit parade were The cat crept in and also L'L'Lucy at number one.

Because of a feud with record producer Mickie Most and with the writing duo Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman began Mud in 1975 self-penned songs, including the hitL'L'Lucy, but interest for the glam rock was already waning. The hits dried up slowly on, despite attempts by the band to come along with their time and discoinfluences into their music to stop. The original line-up of Mud at the end of the 1970s fell apart.

In the 1980s, blew new life into singer Les Gray Mud with a rejuvenated occupation. He was especially in Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom a welcome guest at golden oldiesfestivals. He also arranged television appearances. By throat cancer and a subsequent heart attack , he died on 21 February 2004 in a Portuguese hospital.

Bassist Ray Stiles made starting from the 1980s part of The Hollies and guitarist Rob Davis is from that time active as a dance producer. He wrote among other thingsCan't get you out of my head " for Kylie Minogue. Drummer Dave Mount has withdrawn itself from the music world. He undertook a suicide attempt and died in hospital on 2 december 2006.
