★ Twisted Wheel ★
Twisted Wheel is back like a man from the dead and with tunes to make up for time lost.
The Oldham four spoker (Harry Lavin, James Highton, Richard Allsopp and Jonny Brown) has a gang
of songs above and beyond their previous best, recording in Preston as this goes to press. A new UK tour starts in April plus a single, festivals and a further tour before the album release in the autumn. The band built a great foundation through the Grass Route venues which were the genuine ladders through which Twisted Wheel gained its success. A decade later, and they are still how Twisted Wheel gain access to the game – this time avoiding the pitfalls.
Twisted Wheel were the hardest working band in 2009, gaining the PRS Award for playing the most gigs of any young band. They are grafters, rock n rollers but with the edge of genuine poetry; few
can forget Jonny’s ‘Bouncing Bomb’ or ‘What’s Your Name?’ but audiences will be hungry for his more poignant blues numbers on this tour. ‘We’re not just in a rock ‘n’ roll, punk box. I write a range
of songs. This time, more of my poetry will come out which focuses on things that matter, a commentary on what’s going on in the world. Bands play it safe because they don’t want to upset
people. But your job as an artist is to say what others can’t, to speak the truth.’
Twisted Wheel – it may have been bad, bent and broken but it’s back, a band with integrity, fun and
