Biography

Although they made only two full albums during their existence, The Woodentops were briefly pivotal in the fast changing late 80s music scene, the adoption of their song ‘Why Why Why’ by Ibiza's nascent Balearic scene in 1987 neatly encapsulated a moment when indie rock and dance music crossed over one another. Until that point, with the exceptions of New Order and the ... Read more in Amazon's Woodentops Store

Product Description

Format: Audio CD
the Woodentops are a cracking band mixing (often) frenetic, pulsating percussion with beautiful melody. There is a great variety of tracks here too though from the dreamy So Good Today (which recalls a great day with someone you are in love with) to the driven and really rather fantastic Travelling Man (which to these ears encapsulates the Woodentops sound). Love Affair with Everyday Living mixes quirky violin with a reverberating guitar and the line, "you'll find few that really care, in the comfort of their office chair" - I always liked that!

there are many other highlights too and disc two starts with Maybe It Will Last - a fast tempo, fun song full of frivolity, keyboard cheekiness, guitar and breathless drumming. The Woodentops have a very distinctive sound built up from a tight rhythm section, tuneful guitar lines and singer Rolo McGinty's voice. Its no surprise the band evolved into one of the pioneers of the Balearic scene and the final tracks on the discs reveal this evolution. They released a live album called "Hypno Beat Live" which, when you listen to it, marvellously captures the incredible energy the band had and have live.

I really recommend this album - not least for the number of the tracks on it but more importantly the quality of them. Indeed I would buy it for disc one alone which comprises much of their first album Giant but then you get disc two (their second album Wooden Foot Cops on the Highway - which is also great too + extras) and disc three (more extras and some fine singles). The Woodentops were/are a creative band but this is not at the expense of great tunes and quite simply if this is what you are looking for then this album is a great investment.

GORGEOUS! An utterly Perfect triple CD to celebrate one of the Best Bands I ever saw live (at The Bierkeller in Bristol) who also released 2 Classic, sorry, 3 including the Live one, albums and a Wealth of Brilliant singles, that Always filled the dance floor back when I was a young Alternative D.J.

So, So, So glad to finally get all 3 songs from the Debut single on CD. Utter gems.

All the SONGS are utter gems. The band was a gem. And we should all take this CD to our hearts and add a little light and love into our groovy hearts.
Artwork also beautifully put together especially for this release. Only quibble, more pages in the Booklet for the Album and Single Artwork would have been nice.
Lovely that Rolo did do the sleeve notes though.
Magnificent and About Time!!

The C.D i ordered was from America, so i do not know if the packaging will be the same as the European issue. My copy included a booklet in a 7" single cover, a nice touch. The three C.Ds were all in good condition and so was the cover. I would recommend this seller as they were prompt and the item arrived early.
