Northeast Shows Wrap Up

Thanks to all of y'all who made it out for our several northeast shows last month! The gigs were a blast and Billboard Magazine was even hip enough to catch the band in Hoboken.

And here's a clip to prove it.

Speaking of Hoboken, both there and the night before the Woggles played with Southern Culture On The Skids (SCOTS), who have a new album out that features a song about the late great Montague, called "Montague's Mystery Theme." Both nights when they played it, there was nary a dry eye in either band. Everyone in both bands swapped fave Gue stories over the weekend. SCOTS new album is The Kudzu Ranch. Go get it!

 
Piratepods Interview

In September, Tiffany from Piratepods.com interviewed the Woggles outside of the Tower Bar in San Diego, CA. They've got the interview now on their website. Give it a listen!

 
The Woggles TEMPO TANTRUM – SPIN magazine “Best Of 2009”

We received an excellent mention for The Woggles TEMPO TANTRUM album in SPIN’s BEST OF 2009 issue.

“MY SECRET STASH”

“Three Gems You May Have Missed This Year”

“This mostly instrumental foray into surf, exotica, and Las Vegas grind by these Georgia garage-rock preservationists plays like the soundtrack to the best biker flick you’ve never seen.” – Doug Brod, SPIN

For the Jet Set Crowd

Hey all you jet setters! When you're in Atlanta on a layover check out the Woggles while you chill with a drink! Chas, a very cool photographer in Atlanta, was commissioned to do a 2' x 25' photo-mural celebrating Georgia Music. The mural is in a new bar at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport called "Georgia Brown Juke Joint"  or just "Juke Joint," you can find it on Concourse D close to gate 26. There you'll find the Woggles in their live glory.

Wonderful World of MySpace
A DJ in Kiev in the Ukraine has made a remix of the Woggles version of "The World Is Falling." It is pretty hysterical. The intro is a tad long, but if you can hang through that it "busts loose" afterwards. Is it good bad, or just plain bad? Entertaining either way! http://www.myspace.com/iamdjra


Ghoul A Go-Go
"Put a head on a pole and have a party!" Squeal the little boys and ghouls! The Woggles versionof the Japanese GS tune "Dancing Lonely Nights" is featured on a special Japanese themed episode of the hippest and scariest kiddie dance show around, "Ghoul A Go-Go." Go to www.ghoulagogo.com to find out broadcast and webcast dates and times and you'll see loads of kids and Creighton doing the monkey, twist and jerk to the Woggles version of the Japanese Jaguar's tune. The same episode features a live performance of the 5,6,7,8's.

 

Upcoming Releases!
The Woggles have two songs appearing on Christmas A Go-Go, a Xmas Compilation due out this fall on Wicked Cool Records. The Woggles contributions, recorded at Jeff Bakos' Ampworks Studio in Atlanta, are an original tune called "Santa Is Coming (Ho Ho Ho)" and a version of Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa." Other Wicked Cool Artists contributing cuts include the Boss Martians, the Maggots, the Chesterfield Kings, the Len Price 3 and the Cocktail Slippers.

Montague Memorial 7" Record. Back when the tracks for Ragged But Right were recorded there were a handful of songs that didn't get mixed/finished due to time constraints. Two of those were Montague songs and have since been mixed to be issued on Portland's Blood Red Vinyl & Disc. Shortly before his passing, Montague purchased a 1960 Ford Thunderbird. His ode to it is called "Go Go Thunderbird" and features Montague singing lead with backing vocals by Mary Huff (SCOTS) and Lady Fingers (Hillbilly Frankenstein). The other song is a Ramones-esque rocker about those hot looking radio DJs called "Radio Face."

For another Blood Red Vinyl release, the Woggles recorded a version of "Find It" from the Beyond the Valley of the Dolls soundtrack. The cut is for a compilation that Blood Red Vinyl is doing of songs that are featured in soundtracks. Their first volume, Mondo Drive In: Volume 1 was released to all sorts of critical acclaim.
