Tempo Tantrum, The Woggles’ instrumental compilation is out now on Wicked Cool Records! Available as both a LP & CD, it includes rare and unreleased instrumental tracks (and one vocal number) from early material to newer recordings with the Flesh Hammer as lead string bender.
The regular CD package has 12 cuts and the LP has those 12 plus 2 bonus cuts! If you’re adding that up, it comes to 14 tracks on the LP! But wait! There’s more! Not only does the LP have 14 cuts, but the LP package also include a bonus CD that has 14 tracks too, so that you vinyl lovers can also upload to your ipods or some other fancy digital realm, when you can’t carry your turntable with you.

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.
