Profile Wa Wa Nee was an Australian funk/pop band, active from approximately 1985 to 1989. Led by singer/songwriter Paul Gray and guitarist Steve Williams, bassist Mark Gray and drummer ‘The Sween’, the band signed with CBS Records in 1985. Wa Wa Nee had four singles in the Australian top 40 from their debut album release of the same name. They included “Stimulation” which reached number 2 nationally in Australia in 1986, “I Could Make You Love Me”, reaching the Top 5 in the same year, and both “One And One (Ain’t I Good Enough)” and “Sugar Free” making the Top 20.

“Sugar Free” also reached the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Top 40. This, however would be their only success in America “Stimulation” was released as the follow-up single, but only reached #86, culminating their chart career there… The band’s self-titled debut album went platinum in Australia, despite only reaching #29 on the charts. Wa Wa Nee’s “Stimulation” featured in the first episode of Channel 9’s Underbelly: The Golden Mile (on Monday 12 April 2010).
