An incomplete work ... at the moment!

By the turn of the 1980s the band had largely faded back in to obscurity, certainly when compared to the previous decade!. The Wurzels never stopped performing, and indeed their diary was pretty full with both live performances to the occasional TV show, but record releases during the 1980s and 1990s were limited to even more obscure novelty singles like 'I Hate JR', 'Sunny Weston-super-Mare', and 'I Want To Be An Eddie Stobart Driver'. This latter single (1995) from Loose got in the UK Top 100 and appeared also as a limited edition lorry shaped disc. The interest in this record sparked off renewed interest in The Wurzels.
