Album: Twisted Wheel, Twisted Wheel, (Columbia)
Sunday 29 March 2009
Twisted Wheel are a cocky Oldham trio whose rise has been aided by the patronage of Liam Gallagher and Paul Weller. (Those alarm bells are deafening, aren't they?)
Their music is a Vines/Jet-like boogie-woogie pitched squarely at the stag-night indie crowd. Guitars are turned up to speaker-busting volume, vocals are a throat-shredding perma-roar and the pace is high octane, until a token pair of closing slowies. Another bunch of gobby northerners, another record that stinks of spilt lager. Great.
Pick of the album: At least it's over in two minutes: 'She's a Weapon'
