THE WONDER STUFF / Hup (1989)

The Wonder Stuff's second album is filled with the kind of radio-friendly, well-crafted Pop tunes that were so good at. The occasional use of violin, harmonica, and banjo gave it a Folksy element that distanced it a little from the usual lazy guitar British-Indie sound of the era. It may even help you forget the awful Bubblegum-pop of their d├ębut.
They were criticised for the cynical and angry lyrics that were at odds with the music, but conventions exist to be broken, don't they?

Songs of Note: Golden Green; Unfaithful
