The Wonder Stuff will be joined by their two old sparring partners, Pop Will Eat Itself and Jesus Jones, at O2 Academy Bristol this Christmas for the Sleigh The UK tour.
The Wonder Stuff gained a significant following in the late 1980s with two critically acclaimed albums, The Eight Legged Groove Machine and Hup.
Mainstream chart success followed with their third album in 1991, which included the hits The Size of a Cow and Dizzy performed with Vic Reeves.
The band split in 1994, but after a seven-year sabbatical, they reformed and continue to play their old numbers, along with new material.
Following reunion tours from fellow Stourbridge bands Ned’s Atomic Dustbin and The Wonder Stuff, 2005 saw the Pop Will Eat Itself back on patrol for the first time in nearly a decade.
In 2011 the band re-formed again, with a new line-up that includes original band member Graham Crabb and co-vocalist Mary Byker from fellow grebos Gaye Bykers on Acid.
Nineties indie-starlets Jesus Jones had a short time in the spotlight with their bouncy indie-electronica.
They enjoyed a string of UK hits including Real Real Real, International Bright Young Thing, and the US number one Right Here, Right Now.
The Wonder Stuff, Pop Will Eat Itself and Jesus Jones hit O2 Academy Bristol on December 19, 2013. Tickets are on sale now.
