The Wonder Stuff 2019

MarkGT: “You may recall I got my good friend Miles Hunt of Stourbridge’s finest The Wonder Stuff to guest on my MGT solo album ‘Volumes’ back in 2016; this lead to 3 cracking songs written together, and we continued to collaborate on more new material last year.. this has resulted in a brand new Wonder Stuff album coming in 2019, along with some tour dates marking my live debut with the band!”  Here’s the official TWS press release:

In the grand tradition of The Wonder Stuff never making two consecutive albums with the same line up we are pleased to announce the 2019 line up of the band.

Unbelievably Miles Hunt is still hanging in there on vocals and rhythm guitar. And having spent last summer in Spain playing for Immaculate Fools as well as writing her third solo album Erica Nockalls is still very much on violin and backing vocal duties.

The first of our new members is drummer Pete Howard. A long time friend of the band Pete has previously drummed for The Clash, EAT, Queen Adreena and Miles’ mid 90s band, Vent 414. On bass this summer is another old friend of the band, Mark Gemini Thwaite. Originally from Birmingham, MGT is best known for his guitaring skills, most notably playing with The Mission, Gary Numan, Ricky Warwick and Peter Murphy, but now fancies having a bash on the bass for no better reason than he can. Miles co-wrote three songs with MGT for his ‘Volumes’ album back in 2016 which instigated their working together with the band this year.

So that leaves us with our guitarist. And we couldn’t be happier to announce that founder member Malc Treece is back in the fold. Having not played with the band since 2011 Malc has been playing with EAT in the interim and has recently put together a new band with EAT vocalist Ange Dolittle, Holy Apes. Luckily for us Malc has found time to retake his rightful position as The Wonder Stuff’s guitarist and we’re sure you’ll agree, it is a most welcome return.

We have 90% of a new album written and demoed which we will begin recording in earnest next month and is set for release this autumn.

22nd May – Cardiff Tramshed UK

“No band could copy the aura projected by Murphy, Thwaite, Slutsky, and David J at the second sold-out show at Denver’s superb Oriental Theater.. I was in no way prepared for them to be that good; from some alternate plane, they deployed groove after heavy groove with brutal precision”  http://spillmagazine.com/44201

Peter Murphy w.David J &amp; MGT Brazil 2018

Peter Murphy w.David J & Mark Gemini Thwaite – Sao Paulo Brazil Oct 2018

http://teamrock.com/news/2018-01-18/mgt-premiere-video-for-new-track-every-little-dream

“Every Little Dream” is a song I wrote and demoed years before meeting Mark. It was one of those songs that was waiting for the right context before making its way into the world. When Mark and I started working together on the Gemini Nyte album, I sent him the demo and he loved it. Mark’s guitars and treatment certainly bring something to the party and the track has become one of our favourites, as well as treat to play live. Hopefully that comes through in the video as well, which was shot during our little European tour last year. Once again Mont Sherar did a wonderful job making us look good!” – Ashton Nyte

“”Every Little Dream” immediately stuck out to me, appealing to my indie rock sensibilities with its hint of Jesus & Mary Chain and post punk. I re-approached and recorded the guitars in a much heavier punky vibe, also adding some lead and a Steve Jones inspired solo.. and then asked the mighty Paul Ferguson of Killing Joke to add his powerhouse beats. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the new album.” – Mark Gemini Thwaite

MGT recently debuted Gemini Nyte’s first single “All The Broken Things,” a strident goth rocker with a new video featuring Nyte, Thwaite, Paul Ferguson and ex-The Mission bassist Richard Vernon. Mixed by legendary producer John Fryer (NINE INCH NAILS, HIM, THIS MORTAL COIL) and directed by Vicente Cordero who recently directed videos for QUEENSRŸCHE, 3TEETH and JYRKI 69.
