The Wiggles have been touring and entertaining children across Australia and abroad for three decades, cementing themselves as one of the staples of children's entertainment. In recent years they've been touring pub and arena shows for their fans that have now . .  matured. With the recent welcome of Tsehay to the group, The Wiggles have begun releasing singles off their new Rewiggled double album, featuring cover versions from old and new members. Anthony and Tsehay guide us through some rock winners, funk jams and pop hits, right here!.

Polish Club - Unstable (Island Records)

1. Polish Club

Anthony: Polish Club are just brilliant, they’re a great rock band. The singer, Novak, has this incredible, powerful and smooth voice. We were lucky enough to have them join the original Wiggles on tour and it was wild. When supporting a few of our reunion shows they really set a fun tone for the night.

Kye - Finest Quality (Sony Music Australia)

2. Kye

Tsehay: Kye is absolutely one of my favourite Australian artists. She’s an amazing performer and I love the RnB feel of this track. This is one of my songs of the summer.

Emma Donovan & The Putbacks - Out The Door (house of webb)

3. Emma

Anthony: Emma Donovan is the most amazing soul singer and The Putbacks are a really groovy, cooking funk band. I hope you dig it!

Spacey Jane - Sitting Up (AWAL)

4. Spacey

Tsehay: Spacey Jane’s music is filled with so much sunshine and such beautiful melodies. They always put a smile on my face.

Shrapnel - Uncovered Load (Tenth Court)

5. Shrapnel

Anthony: I love this band, they are kind of folk-y; kind of progressive; kind of psychedelic. Their songs have these lovely melodies with clever arrangements including clarinet, flute and Moog. Toby, their Moog player, is a genius. It's wild!

The Wiggles - Pub Feed [The Chats Cover] (ABC Music)

6. Wiggle

Anthony: Thanks for having us!
