ALTERNATIVE rockers The Wonder Stuff are celebrating their 25th anniversary in style and will be heading to Durham to mark the milestone.

They will play Durham Live Lounge, North Road, Durham City Centre, on July 29.

Leading the charge are founder members Miles Hunt (vocal/guitar) and Malcolm Treece (guitar/vocals), joined by former RDF bass man, Mark McCarthy, Pop Will Eat Itself drummer Fuzz Townsend and Erica Nockalls on fiddle.

The West Midlands-based band gained a significant following in the late 1980s with two critically-acclaimed albums, The Eight Legged Groove Machine and Hup.

Mainstream chart success followed with their third album in 1991, which included the hits The Size of a Cow, and Dizzy performed with Vic Reeves.

The band split in 1994, but after a seven-year sabbatical, they reformed and continue to play their old numbers, along with new material.

During the past 25 years The Wonder Stuff have notched up five top 20 albums, 17 top 20 singles, sold more than three million albums and played to hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
