At #1 in the charts in the UK.
A first for Ginger Wildheart, but it shouldn’t be.
This song reaks of The Wildhearts.
It has the unmistakable jordie voice and makes you tap two feet and nod your head.
It’s catchy, it has a great beat and simple lyrics, but it should be the other band.
The Wildhearts have toured the UK relentlessly for years, they have a very devoted fan base and they play outstanding rock music.
OK, they never made #1 in the chart. They didn’t need to. They made #1 in the hearts of fans worldwide.
It is understandable that Ginger needs to be occupied, he has suffered at the hands of depression for many years and work is a large part of his therapy, but is this a step too far?
Currently he is affiliated with the very edgy and some would say misunderstood, Courtney Love, as part of her touring band.
Is this just too much and selling out for the extra exposure? Some would say so. If it puts The Wildhearts on a bigger world stage some would say marketing at it’s finest.
Whatever they say, we say
“Waay Ay Man, Nice One!”
