30 GOES AROUND THE SUN
- the new album from
The Wonder Stuff is now available

30 years since the bandís very first rehearsal in the heart of The Black Country, the group have returned to their roots to record their latest album in Stourbridge with legendary producer, Simon Efemy.

Digital, CD and vinyl copies are available from our PledgeMusic page.  The album is also available from Amazon, Google, iTunes, HMV and many more outlets.

To celebrate their 30th anniversary, and also the release of their new album, the group have just finished a number of dates on their Anniversary tour, including a hometown birthday party in Birmingham on March 19th, exactly 30 years to the day of their formation and also a sold-out show at the Liquid Rooms in Tokyo.  A number of festival appearances are planned for the Summer months, including Manchester's Gigantic All-Dayer, Simon Says Festival in Leicester, Buryfields Festival in Chesham, the legendary Isle of Wight Festival and also a return to Somerset for the Shiiine Weekender later in the year.  The group will also be on of the first acts to perform at the newly re-opened Tropicana in Weston-Super-Mare in June.  More dates are being added regularly so keep an eye on our Tourdates page for the latest information.

 

 

THE WONDER STUFF DIARIES - '86-'89
Miles Hunt's long awaited book, 'The Wonder Stuff Diaries '86 - '89' is now available.

'I began keeping diaries right around the time that we formed The Wonder Stuff in March 1986. Around the same time I also began keeping scrapbooks of any press mentions we got, posters, flyers and back-stage passes, you know the sort of thing. The contents of this first book of mine are drawn directly from those diaries and scrapbooks, giving the reader not only a detailed look into what went on in and around The Wonder Stuff during it's first four years, but also a detailed personal view of how I was feeling about our journey onto rock'n'roll's uneven path.

I'll make no bones about it, writing this book has been the most difficult thing I have ever done. As well as giving me a new found respect for anyone that has ever published their story, I feel that I have emerged from doing so an everso slightly better person. Finding the balance between what could be considered entertainment, and off loading some of the raw honesty that I felt I needed to, has been no easy feat.

I should add at this point that this is no tatty paperback book we are talking about here.  My good friend and designer, Phil Birchall, has created a thing of beauty from literally hundreds of scans that I have provided him with. The book falls somewhere between autobiography, journal and illustrated coffee table encyclopaedia of The Wonder Stuff.'

Copies of the book can be ordered from the online store.  Miles has also now started working on the next volume to be released later in 2016.
