    Tapestry of Delights:

    Mud were formed back in February 1966 by Les Gray and Dave Mount, who both came from Carshalton, Surrey, and had played in several previous local groups. In particular, Les Gray had earlier played with his brother Peter in a group called The Mournes and it seems that Peter (and not Dave Mount) was in the very early line-ups of Mud. With Dave Mount on board, they added two other Carshalton lads, Davies and Stiles, to the line-up and, after a debut appearance at Streatham Ice Ring, recorded their first 45 for CBS, Flower Power, in 1967. Some copies came in picture sleeves and it is now their most collectable artefact. They continued on a semi-professional basis until April 1968, when they turned professional and released their second and final single for CBS, Up The Airy Mountain, which like their follow-up single for Philips, Shangri-La, the following year, is not too easy to find either nowadays. By now an appearance on BBC's 'The Basil Brush Show' had introduced them to a wider audience, but it was really their link up with songwriter Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman (the team behind The Sweet) which was their big break giving them a string of commercially successful (if ordinary often to the point of boring) pop singles beginning with Crazy in 1973. The most memorable of these were Tiger Feet, which topped the UK Charts for four weeks and led briefly to a new dance craze and Lonely This Christmas, an Elvis Presley pastiche, which became a classic Christmas record.

    They split with Chapman and Chinn in 1975, but by then they were such a household name that their self-produced singles for Private Stock also made the Charts.

    Post-1976 they signed to RCA for whom they recorded into the eighties, though in March 1977 Gray signed to Warner Brothers as a solo artist. As late as 1985 they were playing on the cabaret circuit when, in December of that year, a reissued version of Lonely This Christmas re-entered the UK charts, climbing to No 61. In the late eighties Stiles joined The Hollies.

    Commercially they were extremely successful (in the UK, they never cracked the US market) but their significance in the evolution of rock is slight.
