How did the U.S. miss the Woodentops and 'Wheels Turning?'
Hailing from South London, The Woodentops became a well-regarded UK indie band in the ‘80s. In 1988, their album Woodenfoot Cops on a Highway reached No. 1 on the UK Indie charts and spawned the popular dance floor number called Wheels Turning.
Wheels Turning features the unusual vogueing of lead singer Rolo McGinty. More of a singles band than an album act, The Woodentops are still together, although Woodenfoot Cops was the last full album of new material the band released.
