Friday 31st May 2019
For Twisted Wheel, redemption and revival is not a religious concept but a CV. Born in the backwaters of Saddleworth in 2007, the young band, fronted by the feral, precocious Jonny Brown, roared into the race of indie rock with such anthems as ‘You Stole The Sun’, ‘She’s a Weapon’ and ‘Lucy The Castle’. Their irrepressible energy and ability to deliver inspired rock’n’roll gained them the support slots with Oasis, Kasabian, Paul Weller, The Courteeners, The Happy Mondays and Ian Brown to name but a few, as well as sell-outs on their first UK and European tours.
Constant touring across the UK, Europe and Japan the UK (thanks to the Grass Route movement and the big festivals) led to a solid fanbase despite the dramatic trajectory of its frontman, Jonny Brown - or maybe because of it. Twisted Wheel has indeed rocked and rolled, been smashed up, fallen off the wagon, gone solo, kicked to the kerb, frozen itself off homeless and hypothermic crashing in bushes – before finding its groove and getting back on it, full speed ahead. Last year they rolled out a relentless 60-date Snakes and Ladders/Jonny Guitar tour and a number 1 debuting EP to announce their arrival.Crowds, starved of the rigour of real rock-n-roll meat 'n' bones, stormed last year’s shows, all but four selling out. With growing momentum without any radio play. In 2018 the band secured major support slots on the Liam Gallagher tour, as well as playing Kendal Calling, Leeds and Reading Festivals, Shiiine Weekender, Blackthorn, Mosfest, EH6 and many others.
In 2019 the band have already been added to lineups at Leed / Reading Festivals, Kendal Calling, Mosfest, YNot, The Highest Point with more to follow.
