Mister Twisted

Manchester newcomers Mister Twisted arrive on the scene with an accomplished debut that oozes coolness with a summer vibe that hits the spot reckons Wayne AF Carey…

Mister Twisted arrive and they’re that fuckin’ mysterious they didn’t even send me a proper press release… Just check the photo! They look like Gallon Drunk when you’ve had ten cans of Stella. Yet they sound fuck all like Gallon Drunk. A cleverly crafted debut that sits in the same stable as The Coral or The Zutons, giving us a proper summer vibe of surf rock Beach Boys indie rock. A well written song that gives us some sort of clue to where they want to be. It stops and starts in the right places and gives you a warm pleasure after every listen (I’ve listened three times in a row now) An inventive track that will leave you wanting more from this mystery band. They’re probably from a shit council estate in North Manchester but who fuckin’ cares! A great debut!

  1. Managed to catch them live last year, totally blew me away, they reminded me a bit of Young Fathers but with a broodier, grungy leather clad edge, bags of attitude and superb musicians. Totally wrecks me to think some of these young bands just never get past first base – these lads so deserve to be heard.

  2. Yo Mister Twisted is sick.

    If you dig this band then check out this new stoner punk band from Los Angeles, California called PR Shake (short for Private Reserve Shake). They definitely have a post punk, garage rock, funky punk vibe mixed with some lyrical Twilight Zone type of obscurity.
