This melting pot of original independent chart topping rock ’n’ roll broke into the mainstream charts, producing a single ‘Good Thing’ that was the sound of the summer radio daytime, evening and John Peel at night, simultaneously.
Giant comes from the dawn of electronica, machines matched here with acoustic raw live performance, a scientifically tight melodic bedrock for the characterful vocals of Rolo McGinty, one of UK’s most instantly recognisable voices.
A song from the sessions Why Why Why was the first crossover hit of the Balearic Beat club movement that emerged from Ibiza in the 80’s.
Giant broke the Woodentops across the world and this influential milestone of an album still sounds fresh, singular and unrivalled.
The Woodentops live reputation and this albums influence are continually name checked by today’s musicians, DJ’s and music writers.
Giant will be performed in the original and complete running order for the first time in the Woodentops colourful history.
