Any review in Hi-Fi News & Record Review that starts “The Trudy have been around since 1979 …” and concludes that we are “… easily among the most invigorating bands operating today” is just fine by us. Thanks very much to Johnny Black!!
The Trudy - making independent music since 1979. New album ALWAYS NEVER BEAUTIFUL FOREVER out now!!
More will be added to this website over the next few days and weeks, but in the meantime please click around on the links for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
ALWAYS NEVER BEAUTIFUL FOREVER, the brand new album by The Trudy is now in its 10th week on the Genepool Top 10. It spent two weeks at Number 1 and is currently at 5.
Here are some reviews:
Got to say that after a long wait for the album, it's excellent. There's not a single "filler" or disappointing track. This could well be The Trudy's very own masterpiece. Listen once and you can't help putting it on repeat. (Independent & Unsigned Show, 6 Towns Radio)
SOUNDS LIKE? Well, this is a band who are so in love with pure pop-rock that they do it extraordinarily well. If the world were a more fair and rational place Mark Chapman would have gone after Donald Trump and The Trudy would always be mentioned when we listed the biggest and the best of the pop-rockers, it'd be Fleetwood Mac, Voice Of The Beehive, Scissor Sisters, The Trudy, Alice Cooper and The Bangles. You put "Rocket Heart" on as loud as you can get it and you'll get the idea. So, I guess that answers the 'sounds like?’ question, The Trudy sound like The Trudy and that's a fine distillation of pop styles, tricks, flashes, affectations and inspirations.
If you like pop, you will love this album and if you like rock, you will go ga ga for it and pretty quickly.
IS IT ANY GOOD? Yes, "Always Never Beautiful Forever" is a top pop album and it is an album, not a collection of singles, but there are no duffers and no fillers. Now, spin this shit. (Unpeeled)
Rocket Heart, the new single from The Trudy, is taken from their forthcoming album Always Never Beautiful Forever which is due for a release next month. The band have been going since the early 1980’s and there are hooks and influences from each decade of their existence here resulting in a pretty damn near perfect pop song. (Records I Like – review for Rocket Heart single)
This single adds yet another instant pop classic to The Trudy’s already swelling account of er…instant pop classics. (Masterdog Sings The Browns - review for Bucolics Anonymous single)
With ‘Bucolics Anonymous’ The Trudy have produced something worth getting excited about. (Whisperin’ and Hollerin’ – review for Bucolics Anonymous single)
We’ll never tire of telling you The Trudy are the best pop pushing machine since Squeeze (Unpeeled – review for Bucolics Anonymous single)
‘Bucolics Anonymous’ is the second single to be taken from the band’s forthcoming new album and embodies the happy-go-lucky and feel good charms of pop that this band do so well. (Is This Music? – review for Bucolics Anonymous single)
A lovely exercise in indie guitar rock, with some classic vocals courtesy of Melissa Jo Heathcote, and a nice line in clever witty lyrics (Whisperin’ and Hollerin’ – review for Dirt Cheap Melody single)
Genuinely classy and timeless pop and should be top ten in any civilised nation (Unpeeled – review for Dirt Cheap Melody single)
“Dirt Cheap Melody” is bold and bright and breezy pop music with the lid blown off and a fat rainbow bursting out. If it doesn’t stick in your head, you’ll need to get yourself to a hospital and ask them to check your skull for holes. You’ve probably got a leak somewhere. (Pushblog – review for Dirt Cheap Melody single)
Against all expectations The Trudy have finally got their act together and are releasing a brand new album on April 15th! ALWAYS NEVER BEAUTIFUL FOREVER is produced by The Trudy with Greg Walsh and Peter Walsh and has a great booklet and cover image by long time collaborator twinsglitter inc
This album has been a long time coming, but we’re really proud of the finished result. We hope you like it.

Hello we are working on our new website as, although the old one looked lovely, it was out of date, hard to update and ran on that dinosaur software Flash. Please keep checking back. Thank you.
