Ten years into their career, indie boys The Twang now feel that they are in a position to compile and release a best-of album, featuring sixteen tracks grabbed from across their four albums to date. Hmmmm. Well, they’ve done it all the same, so you can get the excitedly-titled Either Way, It’s The Best Of The Twang from here if you want to. Released by Jump The Cut.
The Twang were part of the mid-noughties explosion of lad-rock bands that brought us The Fratellis et al, indeed Barry Fratelli served as an auxiliary touring member of The Twang for a time. Thirteen years and five albums later the Brummie five-piece have delivered heir latest long-player, Subscription. Double vinyl Lp or CD on Jump The Cut.
NEONTWANG is the doggedly upper-case new record from The Twang, available from Jump The Cut on either CD or NEON green vinyl (see what they did there?). I seem to remember The Twang as being a fairly straight-forward indie guitar band, but either I’m wrong or they’ve developed over time: some rather more interesting production is present here.
