The Wiggles cover Tame Impala.

 

 

 

I'm genuinely obsessed with The Wiggles after being introduced to them by the kids. For a group predominantly aimed at toddlers, they don't half have some good tunes.

Well there's a reason for that. Before the Wiggles some of them were a pub band called The Cockroaches who had some success before changing course.

So I've heard, including adapting some of their songs to be more kid friendly. I've got to say they weren't on my radar, but I can't help listening (mainly because it's the only thing my toddler puts on all day, every day).

 

If you've not heard there was an album put out of Wiggles songs covered by a variety of Australian bands, some mentioned in this thread, which is surprisingly rather good.

This is my kinda weird.

 

Severed Heads early work is hard to find online. I did have links to some in this thread but they kept being taken down. I've since found out that the musician behind the project is very particular about his early versions and which he allows to be heard. He's very net savvy too, I'm surprised this clip is still up!

 

Anyway here's one of his he's put up himself so it might be up for a bit.

 

 

It's a pity I can't find a link to the first Severed Heads track I heard, Pilot in Hell.

Was thinking about Dead Can Dance whilst watering my plants*, and suddenly realised they've not been mentioned in this thread. That's not right.

 

 

* I don't know why this detail is important, but it is.
