Wiggles tribute albumfeaturing Aussie bands

Following on from triple j’s tribute to Nick Cave and 2009’s White Album concert tour, twenty-one of Australia’s finest musicians have banded together to pay their respects to four of this country’s most celebrated songwriters – Murray, Jeff, Anthony and Sam nee Greg.

In honour of all cars big and red, all potatoes hot and all dogs named Wags, The Living End, Adalita, Spiderbait and Frenzal Rhomb, have teamed up to cover the best tunes from The Wiggles twenty year career. In a move that will surely rival the re-release of Nevermind this month, ABC Music has put together Rewiggled: A Tribute To The Wiggles replete with some pretty awesome Pink Floyd-esq album artwork.
