To celebrate the 20th anniversary of its original release, The Wonder Stuff will perform their album “Never Loved Elvis”, in its entirety, at two very special shows at the end of this year - Birmingham O2 Academy on 15th December and London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on 16th December 2011.
“Never Loved Elvis” was released in 1991 and was the band’s third album. It produced four hit singles, including a collaboration with Kirsty MacColl on the song ‘Welcome To The Cheap Seats’ and the band’s first top 5 hit with ‘The Size Of A Cow’.
That same year, The Wonder Stuff staged their very own open-air event, The Big Day Out, to coincide with the album’s release, at Walsall’s 22,000 capacity Bescot Stadium. The event’s name was inspired by hit television show ‘Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out’ and Vic Reeves himself compered the day’s events. Vic would later ask the band to return the favour by being his backing band on ‘Dizzy’, a track he was recording for an album that he planned to release later in the year - upon its release in October 1991, the track reached Number One in the Official UK Singles Charts.
The Wonder Stuff’s current line-up is Miles Hunt (vocals/ rhythm guitar), Malc Treece (guitar/ vocals), Erica Nockalls (violins), Mark McCarthy (Bass) and ex- Pop Will Eat Itself drummer Fuzz Townsend.
The Wonder Stuff are playing 14 sold-out UK shows with their good friends, The Levellers, throughout March so if you didn’t manage to get your ticket for one of these gigs, make sure you get your tickets for the Never Loved Elvis shows right now! www.thewonderstuff.com
