Having recently celebrated 40 years of carrying forward the songs of Adge Cutler, The Wurzels return to The Fleece this Easter Sunday. Get a couple o’ pints down ‘ee then.

A Brief History of The Wurzels- The story starts in the summer of 1966 when Adge Cutler visited John Miles office with little more than a number of songs he had written. The name Adge Cutler and The Wurzels was conceived, a recording contract was negotiated with EMI and in the autumn of 1966 a single ‘Drink up Thy Zider’ was released. This record sold over 100,000 copies and appearances followed on a number of TV shows including David Frost Show, Simon Dee, etc. Further records were released with cabaret and concert appearances all over the country.

The name of Adge Cutler and The Wurzels was slowly spreading until a fateful morning in May 1974 when Adge Cutler was killed in a road accident. The Wurzels decided to continue on their own and in April 1976 they finally hit jackpot with their hit ‘Combine Harvester’ which was a parody of Melanies ‘Brand New Key’. ‘Combine Harvester’ is about a country fella trying to get his hands on a wenchs (wait for it) bit of land. Well at least thats what the record implies. The familiarity of the tune and the jolly sound captured many folks imaginations and sent the record up the charts. It made No 1 and sold nearly 400,000 copies in the U.K. alone. The B-side ‘Blackbird’ was No 1 in Canada.
