Simon Pryce – ReWiggled
In one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of triple j’s Hottest 100, legendary Australian band The Wiggles have proved they are as much loved by the nations’ grown-ups as they are by children, triumphant in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2021 with their incredible cover of Tame Impala’s Elephant. Anthony, Murray, Jeff, Emma, Simon and Lachy staved off challenges from Gang Of Youths, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Spacey Jane, and The Kid LAROI/Justin Bieber, to take out one of the most prestigious titles in Australian music!
Now, the current Wiggles lineup has joined forces with the ‘OG Wiggles’ (Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt and Greg Page), and teamed up with some very special musical friends, for an ambitious and expansive recording project, ReWiggled.
ReWiggled is a double album, comprised of two distinct halves, which celebrate both the enduring nature of The Wiggles’ songbook, and also The Wiggles’ own lifetime love of music.
Side One of the album sees some of Australia’s top musicians paying tribute to The Wiggles, honouring the profound and unique influence the band has had over generations of young music fans.
