The Wonder Stuff – Don’t Let Me Down (Gently)

Pop Will Eat Itself hailed from Stourbridge in the West Midlands, and early line-ups included Miles Hunt and Malcolm Treece, before they formed The Wonder Stuff. The Wonder Stuff’s first album ‘The Eight Legged Groove Machine’ was released in 1988 to massive acclaim in indie circles, especially for Miles Hunt’s cynical, snarly, witty lyrics and delivery. The second album ‘Hup’, released in 1989, picked up where the first left off, however the band had developed a folkier approach. Don’t Let Me Down was the first single and was immediately a massive hit, reaching the top 20 of the UK charts.
