Biography

1) Forming late 2008 around charismatic guitarist/vocalist Marty Frawley and bassist Rick Milovanovic, the Twerps have quickly risen to become one of Melbourne, Australia’s favourite pop bands. They play their own brand of warm and incredibly infectious pop, with elements of the 80s Flying Nun sound and 90s lo-fi. Marty’s cheeky but heartfelt songs are complemented by the crystalline guitar lines of guitarist Julia MacFarlane (ex Batrider) and the sympathetic percussion of drummer Patrick O’Neill.

2) The east coast’s most recent usurpers of unruly hardcore have emerged from the wooded depths of Amherst, Massachusetts. Combining the fundamentals of straight forward USHC with the snotty melody of early 80’s west coast punk rock, TWERPS offer you tracks of rough and rowdy mid-paced hardcore with just enough gruff harmony to keep things interesting. More music for glue sniffers and general misfit fuckups

    "Range Anxiety" is as great as the Underlay EP was awful – and for me that means RA qualifies easily for one of the best albums of 2015. More of this heavenly stuff if you don't mind! :)

    I guess they sound like they'd make a good live band, but fuck their recordings are boring. They sound like The Lucksmiths or Belle and Sebastiian if you sucked all the fun out of them.

    New Twerps release sounds like a great heap of shut the fuck up. Merge, you signed the wrong Twerps for god's sake!

    Really really big hopes for these guys (and no, not the hardcore band though I'm sure they're nice too) and I love the new single. One day they will be the new yo la tengos [2] pretty much sums up my feelings about them
