A RE-POST TO BUY MORE TIME (11)

From 5 January 2010

DON’T GIVE ME LOVE, OH NONE OF THAT STUFF COS……….

mp3 : The Wonder Stuff – It’s Yer Money I’m After Baby

This was the fifth single by The Wonder Stuff and the first to trouble the charts, sneaking in for the one week at #40. But 13 out of their next 14 singles all hit the Top 30 in the UK, including a #1 hit with Dizzy, a collaboration with comedian Vic Reeves in October 1991.

It’s easy to forget nowadays just how massively popular this lot were at the beginning of the 90s…..at one point they headlined a gig with almost 20,000 in attendance at Walsall football stadium near their own home town. It’s also a scary thought to realise that this bit of vinyl is now more than 20 years old.* (it’s actually 30 year old now!!!)

Even if you’re not a fan, have a listen to one of the b-sides for its inspired attack on the pop-tastic machine that was Stock, Aitken and Waterman. Poor little Rick Astley…….

mp3 : The Wonder Stuff – Astley In The Noose
mp3 : The Wonder Stuff – Ooh, She Said
mp3 : The Wonder Stuff – Rave From The Grave

Happy Listening

  1. Now you’re talking. This is one band I went all in for. Those early singles with their screen print sleeves and abundant B-Sides were wonderful stuff indeed. Oh She Said was a great track too.

  2. In terms of content across all tracks, this was probably the best 12″ the Wonder Stuff ever released. Loved the first two albums, but started to tire of them by the time ‘Never Loved Elvis’ came round.
