Before The Wiggles..there was The Cockroaches. As you see there are two Wiggles members Anthony and Jeff in the band. The band formed in 1979 and disbanded in 1991. They had some great songs and they are a very good looking group. The reason they disbanded was Paul Field’s (Lead singer and Anthony’s brother who still helps out with The Wiggles) daughter in 1988 died of SIDS and he says nothing was ever the same again. Soon after, Anthony left to continue his college course in Early Childhood education. But they continued to make songs after.
I can’t really explain a lot of it since there is so much to it.Anthony met the other soon to be Wiggles at the college he was studying at and dedicated the first album to Paul’s late daughter. wiggles.wikia.com explains more.
Here’s some of The Cockroaches most popular songs:
