DON'T GIVE ME LOVE, OH NONE OF THAT STUFF, COS....
mp3 : The Wonder Stuff - It's Yer Money I'm After Baby
This was the fifth single by The Wonder Stuff and the first to trouble the charts, sneaking in for the one week at #40. But 13 out of their next 14 singles all hit the Top 30 in the UK, including a #1 hit with Dizzy, a collaboration with comedian Vic Reeves in October 1991.
It's easy to forget nowadays just how massively popular this lot were at the beginning of the 90s.....at one point they headlined a gig with almost 20,000 in attendance at Walsall football stadium near their own home town. It's also a scary thought to realise that this bit of vinyl is now more than 20 years old.
Even if you're not a fan, have a listen to one of the b-sides for its inspired attack on the pop-tastic machine that was Stock, Aitken and Waterman. Poor little Rick Astley.......
