In a long forgotten period of human history known as the ’80s, a group of suburban boys assembled some instruments and branded themselves The Cockroaches, taking their “meat and potatoes rock” sound around pubs and clubs nationwide. You might know some of them as The Wiggles.
That’s right, back in the day, your baby sister’s favourite band were hailed as one of the country’s hardest working pub rock bands. Their debut album entered the ARIA Album Chart at Number Two and their prolific output earned them eight Top Forty hits, including the smash hit She’s the One.
For the first time in over 25 years, The Cockroaches will make a return to Sydney’s live music circuit complete with their original lineup for two very special shows at the Dee Why RSL on Saturday, 14th June, and the Rooty Hill RSL on Friday, 27th June 2014. Tix are priced at $30 and on sale now.
Your chance to confirm that The Wiggles really were once “an awesome pub rock band” as so many have told you will coincide with the release of Hey Let’s Go!, a compilation of the The Cockroaches’ best-loved hits from 1984 to 1994 – out Friday, 13th June through ABC/Universal.
