The Woodentops entered the scene in 1984 when they announced "Plenty". In the time since they've established themselves in music, delivering more music in 2014 with "Granular Tales". They will be touring soon, with shows in London, Glasgow and Guildford.
The Woodentops are a national treasure. Propelled into the arena by John Peel in the early 1980's and furthered by Rough Trade they produced a slew of high energy singles that leapt out of the radio. One of the stand out albums of the period, Giant, led to one of the best live Lp's of all time 'Hypnobeat Live'. A cut from this album 'Why Why Why is the principle crossover anthem of the second summer of love that brought the club movement of the late eighties. David Bowie, a big fan of the band booked them to support, Prince tried, the Smiths threw them off their tour for being just too dangerous. its an incredible journey that has a bag full of little victories but no one mega hit that has dampened the joy of creation, as is usually the case. The fun is intact and the ideas varied and immediately likeable. The Woodentops are proper, as time has proven and they 100% rock the house. http://www.woodentopsmusic.com/
