Maybe it was the fact that the uncle of singer Miles Hunt had played unhinged French horn on the very weird first ELO album and sax with retro rock & roll pranksters Wizzard which so inspired the irreverent humour and common pop touch of the Wonder Stuff. Appearing from nowhere (well, Wolverhampton actually) in 1987 and with girls' hairstyles, The 'Stuffies dutifully stuck a whoopee cushion beneath the raincoat-covered arse of a glum English indie scene with their 1988 debut Eight Legged Groove Machine--a winning mix of brisk, skiffle-light, laddish pop and quite swaggering impertinence. "Unbearable", for example hammed it up with a sawn-off That Petrol Emotion riff and the almost Churchillian barb of "I didn't like you very much when I met you/but now I like you even less" while "It's Yer Money I'm After, Baby" ("It's not your heart/it's your bank I want to break") was something akin to Ray Davies with behavioural problems. "Astley In The Noose" (one of four b-sides added to this repackaged edition) was a call for the hanging of a certain manly voiced 80s pop star for the crime of singing oldies. Probably a jibe too far, considering the Wonder Stuff went on to have a number one single with a rather hairy-chested version of Tommy Roe's mouldy old "Dizzy". --Kevin Maidment

Walking through woolies in the mid-eighties, i heard 'a wish away' by the wonderstuff playing on the shop gramophone. Crikey, i thought, that's a fine tune. 84 years later i'm still playing this and all the other wonderstuff albums.
Those who know and love them will know that they're an infectious, addictive band caught very easily by word of mouth. I passed the infection on to many of my friends and they all maintain the same affection for this band that i do.
This first album is marginally my favourite over the others but they're all cracking.
If you've stumbled upon this page by accident then first, get help using your computer next time and secondly shell out for this CD and prepare to be educated.
Better still, buy a ticket to see them play their fiddles and bows this winter in a town near you. They're best eaten live.

I have to say I was suspicious of this album originally, as usually I think that no good can come of rehashing former glories but I was surprised. The re-recording has given new life to great songs. The original was great but the recording slightly creaky when played loud but this is great fun, same songs but with the added urgency of a band reliving their youth! Play loud!

Amazing re-working of a classic album. Saw them live recently and this album really demonstrates what they are live now. Raw and loud. A real must for any fan!

Went to their 20 year anniversary of TELGM recently and despite the fact they have lost two of their original members (RIP Bass Thing and Gilksy)they remain as fresh,snarling, vibrant and yet sarcastic as they ever were. Miles you are a genius and whilst this was an album of its times, what times they were. As catchy an album as you will ever find full of true lyrical genius. If they were starting out today they would still make it !!

I was lucky enough to see them at the Reading festival just before TELGM was released, and rushed out to buy it.

I then saw them at Leicester Poly at one of the best gigs of my life. They had a stunning energy and had the whole place dancing, even the usually quiet ones at the back.

This is the only album I liked by the Wonder Stuff, for me their other stuff doesn't even come close, but this is a classic. 5/5

I'm a bit loathe to say it, but, yes, this does sound a little dated now. Still, the album which kicked off my dalliance with the Stuffies is more than loveable. That may be me being a tad sentimental, yet, even for someone who's never heard of these talented eight legs, this album must truly be addictive. And now it's original three-minute pop-rock catchiness has been supplemented with the addition of four bonus B-side tracks - as all Stuffie fans know, the B-sides often proved some of the band's finest moments, but, admittedly, these aren't them (why is 10 Trenches Deep not here?). How The Wonderstuff managed to pale into the dreaded obscurity of the bargain bucket I'll never know, because as tracks as wonderful and audacious as Unbearable, It's Yer Money I'm After and Red Berry Joy Town (and of course the many further and more cultured classics the band were to release ) prove, this Brummie band were, simply, top notch.
