Biography

Oldham, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

http://www.thetwistedwheel.co.uk/ www.facebook.com/twistedwheel https://twitter.com/twisted_wheel

Twisted Wheel was formed in February 2007 in Oldham

Band members are guitarist and singer Jonny Brown, bassist Stephen Evans and drummer Eoghan Clifford

The Guardian’s Paul Lester commented on the band: ‘The sound of Manchester’s youth snatching back ’60s psychadelia and using it to smash in the windows of ‘77 punk… Basically, the kid from ‘Kes’ has formed a punky skiffle band and he’s pissed off about that dead bird…the band produce a ‘furiously fast rockabilly rumble, so primitive and unrefined it makes the Monkeys sound like ELP.’

BACKGROUND
First things first…Twisted Wheel are not named after the legendary Northern Soul club of the same name (though they are aware of it), are encyclopedic about their musical heroes and recoil at the thought of being pigeon-holed as a ‘northern band’.

They are, however, one of the most exciting young British guitar bands to emerge in recent years. . With a fan club including Noel & Liam Gallagher (how often do they agree on anything?), Paul Weller, Shaun Ryder, Ian Brown, Kasabian, they’ve been attracting the attention of the great and the good from their earliest incarnation.

As kids growing up in Oldham singer-guitarist Jonny Brown and bassist Rick Lees absorbed the sounds of their mum and dad’s record collection, paying particular heed to the Beatles ‘blue’ album.
