The WOO!worths

Thanks for stopping by. This is the bit where you learn about The Woo!worths. Two friends, obsessed with music and a love for making new sounds, formed the band in 2006. They compose music which has many ever-changing influences and believe experimentation is at the heart of all great Pop music. They use samplers and computers to help get the sounds out of their heads but are far from being electro-geek-knob twiddlers and their songs are mostly written on acoustic guitar.

POOH STICKS

The Pooh Sticks were an indie pop band, from Swansea, Wales recording between 1988 and 1995. They were notable for their jangly melodiousness and lyrics gently mocking the indie scene of the time such as on On Tape, Indie-Pop Ain't Noise Pollution and I Know Someone Who Knows Someone Who Knows Alan McGee Quite Well. The band changed direction on their 1991 U.S breakthrough The Great White Wonder, eschewing the 'twee' British indie pop sound for a more American-styled Power Pop sound, akin to bands like Jellyfish and Redd Kross.
