The Wildhearts – 25th Anniversary of ‘Earth vs the Wildhearts’



Playing the album in full on UK tour

The Wildhearts

Twenty five years in and the Wildhearts are ready for more – originally formed in late 1989 in the depths of Newcastle, the group are returning to the big stage to perform their debut album, Earth vs the Wildhearts, in it’s entirety. A testament to their celebrated authenticity, 99% of the album is an amalgamation of original  demos, which were aptly recorded on second hand tape, and is characterised by the band’s distinctive fusion of hard rock, perfectly complimented by contemporary melodies.

Having released two EP’s, the Wildhearts prepared to record their 1993 studio album Earth vs the Wildhearts. The album included underground hits, ‘Greetings from Shitsville’, ‘TV Tan’, and favourite, ‘Caffeine Bomb’. An undisputed iconic debut, Classic Rock recently ranked Earth vs the Wildhearts as the 5th best debut rock album of all time, surpassing the likes of Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden.

Despite their many reformations, frontman Ginger will be joined on stage in what is now considered the classic line up of CJ, Ritchie, and drummer Danny to create an extraordinary show.

Never ones to shy away from unusual formalities, the band will also be their own support act by evolving into The Moodswingers before their main set. The crowd will be able to enjoy a back-to-back performance of the Wildhearts’ first two EP’s, which were released prior to their debut album.

Working on their first full-length studio album in 10 years, the live shows are bound to be a reminder of the Wildhearts’ mastery of music and a portrayal of 25 years of prevalence within the industry.

The 25th Anniversary shows are:
Sunday 2nd Dec – London KOKO
Monday 3rd Dec – Birmingham The Mill
Tuesday 4th Dec – Glasgow SWG3

Special guests The Moodswingers and The Amorettes!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
