WONDERSTUFF LIVE PERTH AUSTRALIA 2014

THE WONDERSTUFF LIVE AT THE ROSEMOUNT HOTEL MARCH 2 2014

WONDERSTUFF

THE ROSEMOUNT HOTEL PERTH WA

MARCH 2 2014

Having seen this band way back in 1986 at The Tower Ballroom in Birmingham, it’s fantastic to see that this band is still playing their high energy alternative rock like it’s the last time they will play live again. 
Black Country band ‘The Wonder Stuff’ entertained the Perth audience for the first time in their 28 year career and was the wait worth it?… hell yeah it sure was!! Miles Hunt and the guys hit the stage on a hot summers evening to a packed out Rosemount venue. 


Miles dressed in a union jack kilt, jack boots and a bottle of wine in hand, welcomed the audience with his strong black country accent to inform them that they will be playing there critically acclaimed album ‘Never Loved Elvis’ in its entirety from start to finish. 


This album delivers one great track after another with crowd favourites ‘welcome to the cheap seats’ & ‘size of a cow’ getting the crowd going. Miles’ banter with the crowed is legendary when he quoted that he once wrote a song about his home town of Birmingham, the crowd cheered and Miles replied ‘how many brummies are in here tonight?’ a loud roar went up he said ‘fuck me needn’t have come 10.000 miles might have just gone down the M6’ ( that’s a motorway /freeway in the UK). 


After the last song ‘line poem’ the band took a short break and returned to play more of their hits and a few new tracks that will be appearing on the next studio album and from the sounds of them, the next album is going to be a great one to look out for. 

 
For all you UK readers, if you have chance to see them live they will be playing festivals all over the UK and Europe this summer.
