Biography

Twinemen is a Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA band created by former members of Morphine and Face to Face. The group includes Dana Colley (saxophone / vocals), Billy Conway (percussion / vocals / sometimes acoustic guitar, also a former member of Treat Her Right), and singer and guitarist Laurie Sargent (lead singer / lead guitar). Various bass players, including former Face to Face guitarist Stuart Kimball, also perform with the band on the road and in the studio. Twinemen’s music includes a mix of jazz, blues, acid rock, and lounge.

Twinemen chose their name as an homage to Morphine’s late leader Mark Sandman and his The Twinemen comic series. The Twinemen depicted three anthropomorphic balls of twine who play together in a band. Twinemen currently records in their Cambridge-based Hi-n-Dry Studios.

So far, the group has released two studio albums. A third is currently being recorded and a number of live recordings of complete shows have been released through the KUFALA label.

    I've been a fan of Morphine for ages. I just found out about these guys this evening. So glad that I started listening to them. While I wish that Sandman were still alive, it's great to know that his musical style lives on.

    It's....really weird to hear instruments that sound so much like Morphine, and a singer with his phrasing, and....no Mark. (Miss you always, Mark.) But I like them. I think it helps a lot Laurie Sergeant isn't male and has such a distinctive voice.

    Their two first albums are genious, I don't really enjoy the third one all that much, to be honest... I'm not saying it's bad, just not their best work, for me. Still, Twinemen are one of the coolest acts around. The best Morphine follow-up they could have come up with.
