For years, the Wiggler!?! name was kept up by one man who goes by his stage name Mr! Erik.
Aided by machines, Mr! Erik played in early incarnations of Wiggler!?! for years. He wrote and played his brand of hilarious, makes you think music. (If you ever get the chance, check out ‘The Pantload’ or ‘A Kama Sutra Of contrary Positions.’ Not only will you crack a few ribs, it will make you think about your world.)
But with the addition of the Tiny Humans, things have gotten even better. (The drum and bass player go by Tiny Red Human and Tiny Blue Human, respectively.)
With ‘Scornucopia’, Wiggler!?! And The Tiny Humans as a three-piece has started releasing albums. And it’s a perfect start. A four song, kicking E.P.
1st Track: The Kids Aren’t Getting Any Smarter.
Starting off solid, ‘The Kids Aren’t Getting Any Smarter’ isn’t about you might think. It’s about aging Punk Rockers who do the same music over and over and over with their bands. (As much as we can enjoy them, all Punks; and some outside the scene, can all name at least two bands who pull this stunt every few years. Or months.)
2nd Track: These Aren’t The Drones You’re Looking For.
One of the funnier, (but at the same time more serious tracks on the E.P), this song discusses the possibility of America invading Canada for its oil. It’s a great food-for-thought track. But you’ll also be laughing your a*s off as you listen to the little voice clips. (E.g: ‘Without the U.S, Canada is essentially Honduras. But colder, and less interesting.’)
3rd Track: Wiggler!?! Vs You.
It’s the stuff of legend here in Hamilton. Wiggler!?! vs Adelleda. Only one band will last.
In a totally good-natured way. The bands trade jokes, barbs, and apparently songs bashing each other nicely.
The core of this track? ‘We rock hard/ You rock hard/ Our milkshake brings all the boys to the yard/…. We rock harder than you do.’
4th Track: Threat From The Deep.
In the totally ridiculous/ awesome department, we have ‘Threat From The Deep.’
It’s a song about Zombie Ninja Pirates.
No jokes. No exaggerations. Just listen.
