(1976 – 1978)

Meaning Bandname: Literally means Popgroup Cunt. With this name the band will never get commercially succesful.

Bio: From Enschede. With singer Jan Pieter Kuil, who makes the Aambeeld fanzine and is guitarist/singer for Vacuüm in 1981-1985. Draws the cartoon Tuinstoelen Pietje (for fanzine Blok 5 and he has made a small book). Runs the label Ruziek with 13 releases, mostly tapes. Kut ( translated this means Cunt) does not stand for Kunst Uit Twente (Art From Twente) which is often considered. The band existing out of artstudents doesn’t play music (“If you wanna have music, listen to Thijs van Leer or The Stones!”) and want the crowd to think: “Is this necessary?”. The Dutch lyrics are a staccato summary of diseases. When they record for De 1000 Idioten Records the name changes to Popgroep KUT but eventually they’re never released.
