Garage Rock band The Woggles who are celebrating over 30 years together, have revealed a new double single, “Mr. Last Chance” (b/w “The Will O’ The Wisp’), via Wicked Cool Records. It’s available both on 7 inch vinyl and digitally.
Frontman “The Professor” Mighty Manfred says:
‘Mr. Last Chance’ is our first release to feature the Woggles’ new road-tested two-guitar attack, featuring Graham Day and Shane Pringle.
The band is not as much an institution as a way of life. The main thing is to keep swimming, cause the shark has got to keep moving.
The Woggles now feature a two-guitar attack with Graham Day (The Prisoners, Solar Flares, Thee Mighty Caesars) and Shane Pringle (Tiger! Tiger!, Bad Spell) on the 6 strings with Shane occasionally doubling up on saxophone.
The Woggles continue to feature the rhythm section of bassist Buzz Hagstrom and drummer Dan Eletxro, both also sometime members of English Rock band Graham Day & The Gaolers.
Alan Freed once said that ‘Rock and roll is a river of music that has absorbed many streams. The Woggles drink from its many tributaries, from early rock and roll and R&B to ’60s garage rock, British Invasion, ’60s soul and forward.
The Woggles have played in the past with Johnny Cash, Link Wray, The Zombies and nearly every Garage Rock group worth its salt.
