UPDATE: The EP is part of a special album The Wiggles are putting out next year on March 11 – A double album with guest artists reworking classic Wiggles tracks and The Wiggles covering acts like AC/DC, Queen, The Chats (as seen below) and more!
Well the world got what it didn’t know it needed this morning when The Wiggles teamed up with The Chats to create an EP called ReWiggled, and you just know that it’s going to burn a hole in the #1 spot on every chart leading into Christmas. Along for the ride are Spacey Jane, who flog out a perfectly cheery rendition of ‘D.O.R.O.T.H.Y. (My Favourite Dinosaur)’ that doesn’t make me want to tear my ear holes out.
This five track masterpiece is going to light a fire under millennials arses that are just old enough to go to the pub and grew up on the big red car driving smiling savages that can’t let poor narcoleptic Jeff sleep. This is also a must have for all those parents that are seconds away from jamming their heads through the TV whenever that whispering ballerina starts doing the Arabesque while singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle’.
The big bastard in the red shirt gives ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ a good crack, humming his way through the bit where killing a bloke is mentioned, before The Wiggles point their fingers whilst covering ‘Pub Feed’ and you can’t be blamed for asking if this is the shit that’s really going to bring about the Apocalypse. The Chats rip into ‘Can You (Point Your Fingers and Do The Twist)’ and I already know the twenty-somethings at a Chats show are going to lose their tits in the mosh at this duckwittery.
Rounded off with The Wiggles, Triple J Like A Version of ‘Elephant‘ and I need a long shower, you know, the one where you sit near the drain and try and forget.
But I know that I’ll show this to the missus, and she’ll flog it to within an inch of sanity to my son because me playing Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes to my 14 month old isn’t really appropriate.
At least it’s not Cannibal Corpse. But I’d kill to hear Corpsegrinder rip though ‘Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy!!!’
