Originally released as a private-press in 1969, Philosophy Of The World is one of the most original and brilliant albums of all time. It is also among the most polarising, with some claiming it to be the worst thing ever made - they are obviously wrong.

Becoming hugely influential in the decades since its release, and finding a loving audience in the garage-rock, post-punk and indie-pop world, nothing has quite reached the originality and outsider-pop charm of these twelve songs by the Wiggins sisters.

"The Shaggs are real, pure, unaffected by outside influences. Their music is different, it is theirs alone. They believe in it, live it... They will not change their music or style to meet the whims of a frustrated world" - from the original liner notes
