Biography

Some might have you believe, in 2006, that you don’t have a voice in an English music scene as chained to the kitchen sink as it has been in years unless you’re gruffly reveling in the mundane trials and pitiful pleasures of the daily grind. Not so Twisted Charm. Hailing from Northamptonshire, a county full of towns to small to reach that critical mass where life will be created, but big enough for a Woolworths and a vicious be-shirted bastard on every corner, Twisted Charm use sax, new wave dance inflections and a fraught insistence to expunge the frustrations that seethe within provincial life, and create their own dark reality.

Theirs is a story not of eking out a living and dreaming dreams that’ll never be realized, nor of a smooth ride through life with their music as a convenient hobby, but instead a tale of trying to make sense of bizarre histories and peculiar struggles through music that is almost its own bastard son.

Drummer Dominic Cole now spends his days clearing up the messes mental and otherwise in an insane asylum, where he says he finds it hard to distinguish between the inmates and those who inhabit what’s supposed to be reality. He grew up with brother Nathan Doom, whose snide, cutting vocals reveal a boy whose effeminate looks forced him to become hard as nails. However, Nathan’s black belt in Korean karate couldn’t spare him when an altercation with more of Southend’s natives than he could handle left him with two weeks of concussion.

His skills in the martial arts match his eye for critiquing both the peculiar and banal sides of life from he crafts Twisted Charm’s edgy pop.
