The Cockroaches (founders of The Wiggles) was an Australian “pub rock band active throughout the 1980s. The band was founded in 1979 by the Field brothers ? Paul (lead vocals), John (rhythm guitar, vocals), and Anthony Field (lead guitar, vocals) ? with Tony Henry on drums and Joseph Hallion on saxophone. They were joined in 1981 by Jeff Fatt on keyboards…In 1988, The Daily Telegraph described The Cockroaches, who played over 300 gigs a year, as the ‘hardest-working rock ’n’ roll band’ in the country…Early in 1991 Anthony [Field] and [Jeff] Fatt founded a children’s music group, The Wiggles. The Cockroaches alumni served as musical and performing support for the new group; John [Field] wrote much of their music, Paul [Field] became their manager, and [Tony] Henry performed with them. The Wiggles used many of The Cockroaches’ business practices and reworked some of their songs into the children’s music genre.” Ref: Wiki.
