The Wonder Stuff

The Wonder Stuff Biography (Wikipedia)

The Wonder Stuff are a British alternative rock band. Originally based in Stourbridge in the Black Country, West Midlands, England, the band's first iteration released four albums and nearly 20 singles and EPs, enjoying considerable chart and live success in the UK. The band has continued to tour and record since 2000.

Largely the vehicle for the songwriting of Miles Hunt, the Wonder Stuff split up with a farewell performance as headliners of the Phoenix Festival in 1994, but reformed in 2000 and have toured and recorded since then, with Hunt the sole member of all line-ups.

Known for their catchy songs and Hunt's sharp lyrics, the band's sound evolved from guitar pop to include sampling and elements of folk and country. The band - and Hunt in particular - were favourites of the UK music press, and were often associated with fellow Black Country acts, Ned's Atomic Dustbin and Pop Will Eat Itself, with whom they have toured throughout their careers.

The Wonder Stuff scored one UK number 1 single, their release of Dizzy with comedian Vic Reeves, 17 top-20 single hits, and three top-10 albums in the UK. The band also toured internationally, and had some success in the United States, where they had six songs on the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart.
