Synopsis

Album Description
Following the success of their first album "Hear No Evil", Wake Ooloo recorded this follow-up of edgy guitar-riff saturated songs with veteran producer Don Sternecker. Formed from the ashes of the Feelies, Glenn Mercer and Dave Weckerman have delved deeply into the roots of rock and roll and produced a record of inventive, yet primitive garage rock. Alternating between frantic, hook-laden psychedelia and hypnotic anthems, "What About It" teeters on the edge of collapse, both musically and lyrically. This Cd recalls the time before grunge took over kids' minds. Listen closely to this CD.

CD Reviews

A bit "harder" than the Feelies
Yet another old guy | Phoenix, Arizona | 08/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a Feelies fan, it's easy to say this album doesn't sound like the Feelies. Wake Ooloo is more of a rock band. However, if you like the song-crafting of the primary Feelies singer/songwriter/guitarist, you'll hear the same quality on this album. The song Beautiful Feeling is a good, slow electric song with really good electric guitar distortion stronger than anything the Feelies did. The song Anything is really good - it could have been an acoustic Feelies song from Only Life, it just happens to use electric rhythm guitar. Hard to Find and Monday Morning both sound like Time for a Witness, and both really good. Down That Road is a little different with a gentle bluesy slide guitar sound, but it's a really good song too.
There are a couple of songs on this album I really don't like, but it doesn't matter because the others are good."
