West Midlands-based band who gained a significant following in the late 1980s with their lively shows, infectious song-writing, and two critically acclaimed albums, 'The Eight Legged Groove Machine' and 'Hup'. Mainstream chart success followed with their third album in 1991, which included the hits 'The Size of a Cow', and 'Dizzy' performed with Vic Reeves.
Last year saw The Wonder Stuff celebrate it’s 30th anniversary. Yes, 30 years since the band’s very first rehearsal in the heart of The Black Country. To celebrate their longevity the band toured Holland, Japan and the UK (twice), headlined no less than 10 festivals and saw themselves back in the top 30 with new album ’30 Goes Around The Sun’.
2017 sees the band play a handful of dates in the UK and Europe before releasing a huge live anthology of recordings in a special boxset in November.
The Wonder Stuff have sold millions of albums worldwide and continue to record and tour internationally to this day. During the last 30 years they have remained at the top of their game and play with a passion and an attitude that has set them apart from the majority of their contemporaries.
The Wonder Stuff have had an amazing journey so far; eight albums, exciting spin-off projects and collaborations and now Miles has become an author penning the first of a collection of books “The Wonder Stuff Diaries 86 - 89”. Look out for the second volume “The Wonder Stuff Diaries ‘90 – ‘94”. in the summer ahead of a new album from Miles & Erica!
