The Wildhearts

"The Wildhearts were truly England's last great rock 'n' roll band..." Kerrang! magazin.

You name it, The Wildhearts have had their greasy little paws all over it, then got bored with it..." contactmusic.co.


This band is probably the most influetial British band of the 90s. This is one of those bands who knew what rock 'n' roll was all about and, even though Ginger's excesses got in the way of success, wrote brilliant songs. I have only been into the band for about a week but I am already hooked and absorbed into the band. This is a band I would highly recommend to ANYBODY.


In August of 1989 David Walsh (AKA.Ginger) created a band called The Wild Hearts. It's original line-up was Snake (vocals), Ginger (guitar), CJ (guitar), Julien Dean (Bass), Andrew 'Stid' Stidolph (drums) And so began of one of the most influential British bands of the 90s. Not soon after the creation of the band they created a demo which was heard by Ric Browde who signed them up to Atco Label. Stid is replaced by Pat Walkers and Ric Browde produces The Wild heart's demos. Snake is replaced Dunken F. Mullet and The Wild Hearts play a low-key support slot at the George Robey in Finsbury Park, London. The gig is billed as a 'Sleaze All Dayer'. In March 1991 Ginger, CJ, Joolz and Pat play Nottingham Rock City as a four-piece, Snake having left the band the previous day. Eventually, after numerous auditions fail to turn up a new vocalist, Ginger takes on lead vocal duties permanently. The Wild Hearts went into the studio in December 1991 and recorded their first EP. The Wild hearts then changed there name to The Wildhearts. The Wildhearts then toured and recorded EPs until they released there debut album Earth Vs. The Wildhearts on the 31st August 1993. This album was a raving success and it was all seemed to be going brilliantly for The Wildhearts until July 1994 when CJ was sacked for unknown reasons. The Wildhearts then hirer Devin Townsend to replace CJ. This is the main jist of the creation of The Wildhearts. I could go into it with far more detail and I could carry on the story but it would take me ages . « hide
