Product Description

CD Description

May of 1995 saw the long-awaited release of the Wildhearts second full length album, "P.H.U.Q.". The album was the band's greatest success to date, reaching a number six in the UK charts.
The album diverged from earlier releases with a collection of subtly darker and more involved tracks that still offer the classic sound of the Wildhearts , chunky riffage and catchy melodies. The band bring on the usual pounding rock anthems you know and love them for, with tracks such as `I Wanna Go Where The People Go', `Just In Lust' and `Nita Nitro'. Their energy seems to have tripled with these riff heavy rock numbers. Complementing these tracks by the sheer contrast are the slower, quieter songs such as `Jonesing For Jones', `Be My Drug' and `In Lilly's Garden'.

This 2CD collection contains all the b-sides from the era and the booklet contains notes by Classic Rock's Dave Ling and features extensive artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era, all approved by Ginger himself.

By Chris Hall TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
May of 1995 saw the long-awaited release of the Wildhearts second full length album, ‘P.H.U.Q.’. The album found itself as the band's greatest success to date, reaching a staggering number six in the UK charts. Released through East West, the CD came inside a limited edition velvet slip case that was only available for the first month of its release.
The album diverged from their earlier releases with a collection of subtly darker and more involved tracks that still offer up the classic Wildhearts sound of chunky riffage and catchy melodies. The band bring on the usual pounding rock anthems you know and love them for, with tracks such as ‘I Wanna Go Where The People Go’, ‘Just In Lust’ and ‘Nita Nitro’. Their energy seems to have tripled with these riff heavy rock numbers. Complementing these tracks by the sheer contrast are the slower, quieter songs such as ‘Jonesing For Jones’, ‘Be My Drug’ and ‘In Lilly’s Garden’. As the album progresses you are taken into some darker tracks, such as the thumping classic ‘Caprice’ and ‘Naivety Play’.
The Japanese release through East West Japan includes lyrics and two extra pieces of artwork by Danny Deen, which was banned for the UK release. The artwork later found itself being used on the UK release of the ‘Landmines & Pantomimes’ CD. The Japanese CD of P.H.U.Q. also included the bonus tracks ‘If Life Is Like A Love Bank, I Want An Overdraft’ and ‘Do The Channel Bop’, which were later released in the UK on the ‘Fishing For Luckies’ saga of releases.
All in all, the album is an awesome rock album that includes thirteen killer tracks that will please any Wildhearts fan.

If you are looking for an album swinging wildly from metal to pop look no further than this beauty all the songs are really complex and not for the faint hearted but still an excillerating ride. From the beauty of in lilly' garden to the punch of Nita Nitro its great

5.0 out of 5 stars A logical step forward 19 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
After the slow accumalation to debut perfection The Wildhearts second full length album is a more complex affair. While still retaining the abilty to thump out amazingly catchy/heavy riffs they have moved that logical step forward, and left some of their previous pop at the door.
'Earth Versus The Wildhearts' was an instant classic. Full to the brim of sing along anthems and crunchy pop rock. P.H.U.Q displays a darker sound. The opening tracks are typical sunny Wilhearts ('I Wanna Go Where The People Go', 'Just In Lust' and 'Nita Nitro') but with a harder feel than before. This album differs in that it features 'slow' tracks ('Jonesing For Jones', 'Be My Drug' and 'In Lilly's Garden') which develop a welcome maturity into the Wildhearts catalogue. Also, the second half of the album is a much darker affair, with frontman Ginger seemingly displaying an overall feeling of loss and anger with 'Caprice', 'Naivity Play' (both featuring some of THE most thumping riffs ever present in a Wildhearts song) and 'Be My Drug'.
A welcome step forwards. Heavier in the heavy songs. Mellower in the mellow songs. But all over, a finer a piece of crunchy rock music you'd be pushed to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Brilliant. 16 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant. I could leave it at that. Because, in my opinion, there are no bad songs on this album whatsoever, which is a very rare thing. Every bit as good as their fantastic Earth Vs. debut, (better, in my opinion) this album provides you with all the things that made you love them in the first place, and then some. The classic 'I Wanna Go Where The People Go' is just like a dose of elation, albeit delivered to your brain with a punch like Mike Tyson. Then we have songs that have a darker feel; showing a growing songwriting experience and maturity. I could bang on about each song individually, but i won't. The best bet would be to check out this album - like you probably should have done ten years ago! An unwavering 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional 21 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of the Wildhearts as a 12 year old, when the video for 'Nothing Ever Changes' appeared on Raw Power. I loved that and saved up my pennies and ended up buying pretty much everything Wildhearts put out during the 90s. I loved those two EPs, I loved the first album. I remember when I was 15 wondering how they could write anything better than the those previous releases and was quietly worried that this album would see a change of direction, I expected something 'not as good'.

It took me a few listens, but I always kept coming back to this album. 12 years later it stands out to me as the best thing they ever did by a country mile. There's melody, there's hard rock, grit, beauty and sing alongs. Jonesing for Jones has to be one of my all time favourite songs by any band, from a collection that makes the previous efforts look small in comparison. There isn't a single weak song on this CD, just as there wasn't on anything that came before but Phuq steps it up more than a notch.

Amazing album.
