Here it is, the sound of scrumpy and western from the 1970s. From the early, and some say classical, cuts of early Wurzels fronted by Adge Cutler (the finest voice in all of North Somerset) to their later chart-topping sound. For me the early Adge Cutler songs are the best. Tap your feet and swill your drink to the anthematic beat of Drink up yer Zider (surely the best drinking song ever sung in the English language), the Wurzelphone induced madness of the Twiddle Eye Dee song and the almost melancholic Down in Nempnett Thrubwell. Sadly, Adge was killed in a car crash in 1974 and the world and North Somerset became a sadder place. However, the rest of the band took up the challenge and with Pete Budd doing vocals they hit the big time with top ten hits like I am A Cider Drinker and Combine Harvester - here reproduced in all their glory. Listening to this brings back all my happy memories of that sunny decade. Bristol City in the First Division (that's English soccer ) and the Somerset cricket team (that's a game a bit like Baseball) beating all comers like later day Olympians. If you think music is about enjoying yourself, drinking fermented apple juice and not about morose spotty faced youths in their bedrooms nor middle-aged middle class people listening to obscure jazz records then this is for you. From the sleepy lanes of Farrington Gurney to the bustling broadways of Bristol, the music of the Wurzels beats on.

Never meant to be taken seriously, the Wurzels have nevertheless proved their longevity by keeping themselves busy making music over a period of more than forty years. For much of the time, they have been content to play local venues in Bristol and Somerset, but they have made an impact nationally (with a British number one hit) and internationally (with the same song becoming a Canadian number one hit). They actually scored hits with five different songs in the British charts. A re-mix of their biggest hit also charted. Wurzel music is difficult to classify. British stores such as HMV and Zavvi generally put it on the easy listening shelves, but I would say that the main influence is folk. The Wurzels like to call their music Scrumpy and Western, so perhaps they think their music should sit on the country music shelves next to Tammy Wynette's albums. You must make up your own mind what classification you file their music under, if you feel the need to classify it.

The Wurzels began their long musical career in 1966, with Adam John (Adge) Cutler as their leader. Under his leadership, they built a loyal local following in the Bristol and Somerset area and making some impact further afield. They scored a minor British hit (Drink up thy cider) in 1967, which helped the associated album (Adge Cutler and the Wurzels) into the British album charts. They continued to perform in their local area but seemed either unable or unwilling to make any further impact nationally. Tragedy struck when Adge Cutler was killed in a road accident while driving home one night in 1974. This forced the remaining Wurzels to consider their future. They stayed together but made some adjustments.

Those West Country thrash merchants deliver another slice of bowel-loosening rawk in this, their finest album to date.

There's a solid grunge undercurrent, a hint of melodic death metal (occasional growls and whimpers) and an overall country bumpkin aesthetic (black waistcoats and red neckerchiefs).

The songs themselves are an unusual mix of high-octane, head-banging numbers and synth-licked ballads, which deal with everything from the joy of stamp collecting to the dangers of Estonia's current monetary policy.

However, the real strength of the Wurzels is singer and lead axe-man, Phil (pictured on the right), with his earthy, operatic voice he delivers stirring, anthemic tones that will make your ears bleed - brilliant!

The definitive collection of all things Wurzel, This album contains the best songs from Adge Cutler & The Wurzels, and The Wurzels. It really doesn't get much better than this: "Drink Up They Cider" - Adge Cutler's unofficial national anthem of Somerset, "Combine Harvester" - the song The Wurzels took to no 1 in the singles charts and "Farmer Bill's Cowman" and "I Am A Cider Drinker", which both made the top 10 too. And loads of other songs, which might act as an eye-opener to those people who thought that The Wurzels were just some kind of joke band. Formed in 1966 - and still gigging today; they "are" Somerset!
