The Men From W.O.M.B.L.E.
is an album which will cement our reputation as the formidable cockroaches of rock n’ roll! That music keeps on coming! With this album we aim to take you with us on a journey of discovery in an entirely new direction.
You're gonna find synths and sampling taking a front seat and driving the band forth from the underground into the glamourazzi overground world of popular dance music...

Larry Love says ‘Alabama 3 are sick of being in Nashville. We’ve now made a record that will get us into St. Tropez night clubs, Milan Fashion Week and every hot shot club from New York to LA.  It’s funky, it’s perverted and it’s religious.’

So what is wombling all about? You’d be forgiven if the first image that resonates in your mind is a furry children’s TV character from the 70’s.

'I like to think that they were the first eco activist living off the land. In some kind of sense it represented an apocalyptic approach to children’s cartoon,' says Larry. 

‘Underground, overground, wombling free, the wombles of Wimbledon common are we, making good use of the things that we find, things that the everyday folk leave behind.’

The ethos behind this album plays on that idea - ‘making good use of the things that we find’, furthering the band’s commitment to form collectives and work undefeated with the acknowledgement of their dying industry.  

'I think in this day and age, something that you have to establish as a musician, is whether you are underground or overground. I think that Alabama 3 can hold their heads up and say that we have maintained and are developing an underground base, which I’m very proud of.' –Larry Love

And W.O.M.B.L.E is an acronym, standing for WORLD OF MILITANT BEAT LIBERATING EXECUTIONERS - a commitment to keep terrorizing the music industry with their subversive approach.
