Birmingham based The Twang have just confirmed that they will release their fourth album ‘N E O N T W A N G’ (Jump The Cut Records) on March 10 and have unveiled the song ‘Larry Lizard’ as a taster.

The band formed in 2004 and gigged extensively in and around under the name Neon Twang; a couple of tracks ‘Cloudy Room’, ‘Push The Ghosts’ and ‘Aimless With An Aim’ survive from this period.


The new album, the follow-up to 2012’s ’10:20′, was recorded in London at Lightship 95 studio throughout 2013. The album recording marks the debut of newest member Jon ‘Simmo’ Simcox as a full writing member of the band.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
