History of Adge Cutler & The Wurzels
Part 5: The Wurzels Renassiance (1999-20??)
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.
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
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.
