“... bless ‘em, they played a blinder of a set with people going appropriately nuts for ‘Size of a Cow’, ‘Golden Green’, ‘Give Give Give Me More More More’, ‘Unbearable’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Down, Gently’ in a set that was far, far too short.” – Time Out Review
“We’ll never take ourselves too seriously” – Miles Hunt
In the 90’s the English town of Stourbridge became known for spawning three of the countries finest bands ‐ Poppies aka Pop will Eat Itself, Neddies aka Ned’s Atomic Dustbin and of course the Stuffies aka The Wonder Stuff.
The Stuffies last played in Australia with Jesus Jones in 2011. They are returning for a headline tour in Feb/March 2014 performing their classic album "Never Loved Elvis" in it’s entirety!
Released in 1991, "Never Loved Elvis" was the Stuffies third album and was considered a great leap forward. It was at this point that the band had found their groove and turned out a sound that showed evolution and progress with a little bit of everything thrown into the musical mixing pot with stylings such as Celtic shadings, country raucousness and good-time heel kicking rock driven by fiddle, banjo and piano among other elements.
The sessions spawned the pure pop gem "Size Of A Cow", which Miles Hunt confessed "I haven’t got the slightest notion what it’s about", the music-hall chant-along "Welcome To The Cheap Seats", the Aust Top 40 hit "Caught In My Shadow", "Mission Drive" and "Sleep Alone".
Alongside "Never Loved Elvis" being played in it’s entirety, there will be an special encore featuring a plethora of other Stuffies classics including "Give Give Give Me More More More", "Don’t Let Me Down Gently", "It’s Yer Money I’m After Baby" and "Unbearable" to name a few.
"I don’t like the idea of Elvis: the whole marketing machine that turned this guy into a God".
So, act fast to avoid the Cheap Seats or you will make a Grotesque mistake as the Stuffies are heading down Mission Drive with a detour down under in 2014! ... was there enough song references in there? haha
