The Wombats secure first ever UK Number 1 album with Fix Yourself, Not The World

Plus new entries from Bonobo, Elvis Costello & The Imposters and The Lumineers.

The Wombats reach Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart today with Fix Yourself, Not The World, marking their first chart-topping LP in the UK.

The Liverpool indie rockers reach the summit with the most physically-purchased album of the week, with 86% of its total chart sales coming from physical copies.

As well as a Top 20 debut record in 2007 (A Guide To Love Loss & Desperation), the band previously achieved three consecutive UK Top 5 albums; 2011’s This Modern Glitch (3), 2015’s Glitterbug (5) and Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (3) from 2018. See The Wombats Official Charts history in full here.

Speaking to, The Wombats said:

"Number 1 in the UK! Thank you so much. This is a proper career milestone. Thank you to everyone who helped us make the album; to everyone who bought the album, streamed it. This is pretty surreal. Here's to making 'indie landfill' great again!"

At Number 6 is chart legend Elvis Costello, who achieves his 14th UK Top 10 record with The Boy Named If, with his band The Imposters. 

Outside the Top 10, American folk band The Lumineers enter at Number 18 with Brightside, while blues rockers The Temperance Movement’s live album Caught On Stage - Live & Acoustic debuts at Number 35.

Yay! So happy for The Wombats after their over-due Number 1 album!




Congratulations to The Wombats on their first #1!

Disappointed that The Weeknd fell down to fourth though. :/

A polar opposite difference of generations again...buying physically triumphing against free streaming ...You cannot beat the following of live bands.




Sales are far more relevant on the albums chart than the singles chart though, as both of them are showing this week! :P
