Related: Wiggles.

Spiderbait, Washington, Sarah Blasko, Adalita and Oh Mercy will pay tribute to one of Australia’s most successful bands. No, not Temper Trap, but The Wiggles, who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year.

Rewiggled features 20 Wiggles classics interpreted by acts including The Living End, Jebediah, bluejuice, Frenzal Rhomb, Clare Bowditch, The Snowdroppers, Busby Marou, Papa VS Pretty, The Audreys, Dead Letter Chorus, Angie Hart, Sons of Rico and Architecture In Helsinki, although cynics may argue they've been covering Wiggles songs for years. It’ll also feature a Wiggles mash-up by Sampology.

The collection will be released through ABC Music – who have put out the Wiggles’ records since day one – on November 4.

Tracklisting:

The Living End – Hot Potato
Washington – The Monkey Dance
Jebediah – Getting Strong!
Sarah Blasko – I Love It When It Rains
Architecture In Helsinki – Wiggly Party

AMAZE

That's a pretty impressive list of bands. You'd jump at such good exposure to new parents looking for relief.

And Sampology is very good and his track will be very good, I wager.

no Steve Balbi?


denialdemonicdisrup  said about 2 years ago:

I would've been impressed if they got Bloodduster on board. they'd be perfect.

''For British Eyes Only''


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

album cover's a bit meh for such an amazing project.


tugboat  said about 2 years ago:

I'm getting ready to wiggle with Adalita.


nyx  said about 2 years ago:

yeah the album cover is lame.


bungle  said about 2 years ago:

the wiggles dudes have terrible in-house designers, no surprise there


untold/animals  said about 2 years ago:

I guess I'm well out of the target market. This looks largely heinous. There are perhaps two or three songs I would be curious to hear.


columbo  said about 2 years ago:

do many of these artists actually have kids?

(not that it's a prerequisite - just curious)


columbo  said about 2 years ago:

smells like an audacious cash-in to me. lame.


tinyman  said about 2 years ago:

Would you rather ''Reverse Rewiggled''?

The Wiggles cover songs originally by each of these musos?

Yes.

Yup.


hoot  said about 2 years ago:

yawn


history  said about 2 years ago:

I'm going to go right out there and say the cover is actually ok... but the cd looks like one of the biggest ''cash-in'' turd ideas I've seen in a while.


Coz  said about 2 years ago:

The cover just seems like an ill fit with the bands on the record in my opinion - it looks more like the cover of a generic dance album rather then a line-up of ''alternative'' artists - the line-up does seem to hark back to the days when ''alternative'' was considered a genre in its own right. I predict that some of this album will be good, whilst most of it will be extremely shit. Could have been made more cohesive by selecting bands for their musical merit rather than ''what the kids listen to these days''.


yoghurt  said about 2 years ago:

My Dad is on this album, so yes Columbo, at least one of them has kids.


Little Ted  said about 2 years ago:

I find this Whole thing troubling!


history  said about 2 years ago:

It's also kind of funny that the Wiggles have probably made more dosh than all the artists on this cd combined

I used to work for their accountant's wife. ''More money than they know what to do with'' was the quote, I believe.

ah ok! nice :)


SheikYerbouti  said about 2 years ago:

This is fucking awesome news! Best way ever to get my 3 yr old into indie bands.



anonymous  said about 2 years ago:

(not directed at you sheik, just remembered it after though)


ijed  said about 2 years ago:

As appealing as a plate of cold spaghetti...


postergirl  said about 2 years ago:

I am clearly out of sync with the zeitgeist.


blake3030  said about 2 years ago:

All of the above points are well made, but as a band.. this probably would have been pretty fun to do.


dickfacekillah  said about 2 years ago:

I bet the Frenzal song is awesome. If only Tom weren't on it.


kicking.jesus  said about 2 years ago:

cynics may argue they've been covering Wiggles songs for years
The entire inspiration for AiH is the 'round the twist' theme song


not-ian  said about 2 years ago:

boring


nyx  said about 2 years ago:

My sister in law will buy this album.


SheikYerbouti  said about 2 years ago:

Anon - I know that article is a (good) pisstake, but seriously for a sec: I want my kids to be out of touch with the bullshit part of their generation, if that means they don't know who justin bieber is, fine. I had no idea who the current pop stars were when i was in early high school. But I had loads of friends who were into 60s stuff. I was out of touch with the mainstream consumers, and very in touch with music fans.
