work in progress!

The late 1990s saw the continuing of this revival of the fortunes for the surviving Wurzels, gaining a cult status amongst students and a resurgence in their popularity in their native West Country. A number of CD releases followed, largely featuring re-recordings of older works, but also Never Mind The Bullocks, an album of cover versions of contemporary British rock songs. This album was recorded with George Allen AKA Bob Noxious who went on to become tour manager of The Magic Numbers and Manager of The Mission. In 2005, the band released a limited edition split single with British Sea Power. The Wurzel's covered BSP's Remember Me while BSP covered I Am A Cider Drinker. The band also supported BSP at their gig at the London Forum in November.

The Wurzels continue to gig around the UK, although they pulled out of the 2007 Glastonbury Festival, having been scheduled to play the bandstand stage where they could not use their own sound engineers even though they had played the same stage at the 2000 Glastonbury Festival.

In 2007 it was announced that The Wurzels and Tony Blackburn would re-release I Am A Cider Drinker with the royalties from the song going to the BUI Prostate Cancer Care Appeal in Bristol.
