Bands to Watch #59: Twisted Wheel

By on Monday, 29th December 2008 at 12:41 pm

Twisted WheelThey’ve toured with Kasabian, The Rascals, The View and have recently been hand-picked by the Gallagher brothers to support Oasis during 2009. It’s unsurprising then, that Twisted Wheel are getting quite a name for themselves. The Manchester trio – who follow in the footsteps of previous revered Northern bands before them such as The Verve and The Stone Roses – are bent on bringing their gritty rock ‘n’ roll to the masses. Frontman Jonny Brown spits his lyrics out with a ferocious enthusiasm like a young, swaggering Liam Gallagher. They’re raw and exciting and everyone from Zane Lowe to Steve Lamaq have tipped them to achieve big things in the coming months.

Twisted Wheel are loud and they know it. They cringe at being compared to Arctic Monkeys. It’s understandable – the garish trio are substantially different from the chart topping indie Mardy Bums. Think more The Enemy – if you loved ‘We’ll Live and Die in These Towns’ check out Twisted Wheel.

The trio are much more than just lad-rock, though. Tracks such as ‘She’s A Weapon’ and ‘Big Issue’ expose the bubbling punk undertones of the band’s music which display singer Jonny Brown in a Johnny Lydon-esque manner.

The band, who have blagged a deal with Columbia Records, will be releasing their debut album early next year. You can grab a free download of ‘She’s A Weapon’ below:
