Fishing For Luckies - Wildhearts (The)

Fishing For Luckies
The Wildhearts released the original Fishing for Luckies in December 1994, in a limited edition available only via their fan club. The songs were newly recorded and featured the lineup of Ginger on vocals and guitar; C.J on guitar and vocals; Danny McCormack on bass; and Ritch Battersby on drums. Gordon Mabbett contibuted accordion on "Geordie in Wonderland" and Marc Fox played additional percussion on "Do the Channel Bop."

After the top 10 success in the UK of the album P.H.U.Q. in 1995, East West Records planned to release an official version of the album, to be titled Fishing for More Luckies, with three extra demo tracks. The only change to the tracks from the original fan club release was a count-in to introduce "Do The Channel Bop."Of the added tracks, a completed version of "Underkill" was later included on the Sick Of Drugs single. A string quartet made up of Charles Mutter (violin), Thomas Norris (violin), Bruce White (viola), and Phillip Sheppard (cello) appeared on Saddened .

P.H.U.Q

Released on 27/09/10. May of 1995 saw the long-awaited release of the Wildhearts second full length album, P.H.U.Q. . The album was the band's greatest success to date, reaching a number six in the UK charts. Released originally on East West, the CD came inside a limited edition velvet slip case that was only available for the first month of its release.


The album diverged from earlier releases with a collection of subtly darker and more involved tracks that still offer the classic sound of the Wildhearts ,chunky riffage and catchy melodies. The band bring on the usual pounding rock anthems you know and love them for, with tracks such as I Wanna Go Where The People Go , Just In Lust and Nita Nitro . Their energy seems to have tripled with these riff heavy rock numbers. Complementing these tracks by the sheer contrast are the slower, quieter songs such as Jonesing For Jones , Be My Drug and In Lilly’s Garden .


This 2CD collection contains all the b-sides from the era housed in a slipcase, the booklet contains notes by Classic Rock’s Dave Ling and extensive artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era, all approved by Ginger himself.

Endless Nameless

Released on 27/09/10. Released under the Mushroom Records label back in October 1997, the Endless, Nameless album caused a huge stir amongst Wildhearts fans, due to its distorted sound and white noise mixing. The album produced two sets of singles, Anthem and Urge . The track Anthem sported Danny McCormack as lead vocalist for the first and only time. Abandoning past sound in favour of an almost industrial punk style, the Wildhearts hid ten gorgeous pop songs behind infinite layers of noise. 'Anthem' and 'Pissjoy' emerge as tunes first, with the kind of choruses which would guarantee chart success if you could only make them out.

But the production, is utterly fantastic. The songs are still undeniably of the same breed as 'I Wanna go Where The People Go' and 'Sick of Drugs', but are elevated to even greater heights by the production. It's never gratuitously noisy. The songs were made to work with the production. It's perhaps the most innovative and misunderstood masterpiece of the nineties. And nobody has even come close since.


This 2 CD collection contains all the b-sides from the era housed in a slipcase, the booklet contains notes by Classic Rock’s Dave Ling and extensive artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era, all approved by Ginger himself.
