about

released in 2005
a review from punk planet(RIP)
Part electro surf punk from outer space, part David Lynch outtake, and part home brewed garage opiate, I'm not exactly sure what The Wiggins are, but whatever it is, it's in' rad. Think the redefinition of lo-fi, Lou Reed in a garage disposal, Johnny Thunders'vampire alter-ego, leper underwear parties, and successful amateur noir snake charming. Rumor has it there's just one local Houstoner behind all this madness, which makes the effort even more impressive. This is the stuff of magic that gluttonous hipster vultures and college radio DJs will be getting all weak the knees about once Pitchfork clocks in a 8.372, so do yourself a favor and get it while it's fresh. (BM)

WHEN I GET UP was featured on the hit CBS comedy HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER in 2007... Check out the great scene! turned out great!( thanx again CARTER n' CRAIG!!!):

about

The Wiggins Houston, Texas

Jon Read is an artist and a musician. With his band, the Wiggins, he makes the kind of music that they’ll play on oldies stations fifty years from now after the plug gets pulled, the blood gets spilled, the power returns, and people get back to partying like they party right now. The Wiggins’ music is a loud, hissing mix of idiosyncratic garage and punk, and Blues..
