With such ditties as "I've got a brand new combine harvester" bouncing around me nostalgic synapses, does anyone know whatever happened to The Wurzels [English country bumpkin versions of Weird Al Yankovich but funnier...].

As far as I know, Adge Cutler died in a road accident some years ago, but I believe the rest of the band are still performing, more as a comedy show performance than anything else.

I've always loved that term...road accident. Did the road eat him,attack him,molest him first, what????? Did he have a heart attack as he ran screaming into the night, "Get that friggin' road away from me!!!"

Yup, Adge Cutler died but they carried on...was it a good idea?.....Last I heard the dark haired one (Pete somebody?) was running a pub near where I lived in Devon, little village near Newton Abbot, can't remember the name. He did have music there sometimes.

I've tasted a lot of that green-tinged, lumps floating in it, scrumpy in the west country - and I was convinced that something dead was part of the process of making that stuff. As Art Thieme always said, "Good, though!"

I saw the incomparable Wurzels perform at Guildford festival last year. Most of the crowd seemed to know bits of the words & they went down really well in a sort of hot summery nostalgic kind of way. As I remember, they whipped themselves up into such a frenzy that one of them felt compelled to moon the audience. Aged buttocks & cider - what an afternoon....

oooo-arrrrrr.

Not really, catspaw. Adge Cutler wrote really good lyrics. Songs like "Twice Daily", "I want to swim in the Zuider Zee" and "Drink up Thee Cyder" (to say nothing of "Chitterlings" and "Faggots is the Stuff") but that was before all the "I'm a Cider drinker" stuff. Adge was the real genius and The Wurzels have never been anything since he left us (sob).

Ian... I just hope that you are being tongue in cheek..I can't actually believe that someone started a thread about this. Didn't the Wurzles do the one about shagging on top of the milking shed in the moonlight or something loike that.... Get orf moi laaaaand!!!

While we're at it who remembers the Rubettes?

"I've got 30(?) acres

and you've got 23...."

yeah, I remember that too - I've just been in Wurzel Country actually, down in Dartmouth/Dartmoor - didn't get nearly as much scrumpy drinking done as I would have liked though, damn....

My father's reaction to the combine harvester song (he being a charterad accountant specializing in farm accounts) was "With that number of acres, he can't afford it. And he'd need to marry a good many more than that to make it worth it."
