The Pictures On The Wall Have Faded – ‘Hup’ by The Wonder Stuff, Revisited

  1. Admittedly, I was a fan of both halves of the Stuffies’ career and remember them with perhaps a bit more fondness than you do. However, I do find myself cringing at some of their lesser moments these days and the amount of times they pop up on my iTunes has decreased dramatically. I do really enjoy these ‘revisited’ posts of yours.

    1. Ah, yes… I have an extremely complex relationship with this band. They were so incredibly important at the time that even looking back is a little painful (if that’s the right word).You’re spot on with the cringe factor – perhaps the folly of youth stinks up the joint from time to time?

      And glad you’re enjoying these: do shout if you have any “requests”.

  2. bands with the level of humor of The Wonder Stuff — (stuff like 30 years, its yer money i’m after baby, etc.) were a part of their times — not going overboard like Too Much Joy but also shunning the schlock rock of U2 or mopishness of the cure, echo & the bunnymen, etc. perhaps it wasn’t timeless, but its still worth an occasional spin.
