Wurzelography - Wurzels, Past & Present

Below are listed all known members of Adge Cutler & The Wurzels, and The Wurzels, past and present. Each band member links to a page with more information about that person. Below is a Wurzelogram charting the arrival and departures of the various band members.

We also have some information about those people who, while never part of the band, have played a major part in the story of Adge Cutler & The Wurzels, and The Wurzels: managers, producers, and other musicians who have appeared on Wurzels records over the years.

And not to be forgotten, those musicians who have been credited for their performances on the various band recordings:

  • 'Dapper' Dan - introduced as the drummer on the track Up The Clump on the 1968 album Cutler Of The West (but not credited on the album sleeve).
  • Eddie Clayton and Douggie Wright - both credited on drums on the 1969 Carry On Cutler! album.
  • Andy White, Dougie Wright and Tony Fennell - all credited on drums on the 1975 The Wurzels Are Scrumptious! album.
  • Andy White, Dougie Wright and The Keith Monk Sound - all credited on the 1976 Combine Harvester album 'for their support'; Andy and Dougie - one would presume - for their drumming. The Keith Monks Sound System's input is less obvious, but is probably involved in "enhancing and enriching the quality of the sound" (according to their website)
  • Sue Martine and Andy White - thanked on the 1977 Golden Delicious album sleeve notes. Andy was, no doubt, the drummer on the album; Sue's input is more of a mystery, but one would presume that it is her voice heard on the song School Days, Young Days.
  • Rod Owen (The Wurzels musical director) and Ed Welch (The Wurzels arranger) on keyboards, Dougie Wright (drums) - credited on the 1978 I'll Never Get A Scrumpy Here album. Bill Pinell is also mentioned on the sleeve notes on the album sleeve as 'our ever cheerful drummer' - this is the only time he received any credits, and he does not appear to have played on the recording sessions.
  • Geoff Betsworth (acoustic guitar, dobro, steel guitar and hamonies) and Malcolm Mason (guitar, sequences and hamonies) - played on and composed material for the I Want To Be An Eddie Stobart Driver EP (1995).
  • Becky Hutchison, Emma Richardson, Anna Chaddock and Sarah Clarke - backing vocals and cheers on I Want To Be An Eddie Stobart Driver.
  • Russ Crook - Additional Guitars on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Chris Goulstone - 'Rawk' guitar on Rock DJ and Why Does It Always Rain On Me on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Alan Wilson - Rockabilly guitar on Country House and Tubthumping on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Reg Watson - Steel guitar on It Wasn't Me on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Cally P. - Backing vocals on Oo Ar Just A Little Bit, Why Does It Always Rain On Me, Rock DJ and Tubthumping on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Bob Noxious - Guest vocals on It Wasn't Me, Come On Santa and Rock DJ on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Jack, Ali and Hannah Greenwood - Backing vocals on Dead From The Waist Down and Rock DJ on Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels.
  • Tony Blackburn - Vocals on I Am a Cider Drinker 07.

In addition Mervyn Hancock's book Wurzel's World mentions keyboard player Paul Buck, bass player Ron Keys and drummer Bill Pinnell as musicians 'who have supported the band over the years'. These appear to be musicians who have played with the band but never recorded with them.

If anyone knows anything more about the people listed above, or knows of anyone missing from the list, then I'd be interested to hear from you. I'd also be interested to know what became of former band members - did any of 'em make any further records, take up different careers, or what? If you have any news, don't keep it to yourself - please let us know.
