Twisted Wheel, the Oldham four-piece (or four-spoker, if you will) are back with some rollicking new tunes and a tour to boot. It’s hitting Newcastle and Stockton this November.

Twisted Wheel are the little indie band that could, and have long enjoyed the patronage of luminaries such as Paul Weller, Oasis, Kasabian, The Courteeners, Ian Brown, and, well, you get the picture. They first emerged around 10 years ago with blood pumping through their veins and anthems to burn such as ‘You Stole The Sun’, ‘She’s A Weapon’ and ‘Lucy The Castle’. They’ve had a bit of hiatus of late – TOO much rocking and rolling, TOO much smashing and getting smashed – but have returned in fine style this year with a fab new EP, ‘Jonny Guitar’, which is resplendent with their trademark hooks and big, chant-a-long choruses. They toured earlier this year and it was a big, euphoric, sweaty stage-dive of a party, and I don’t think anyone would complain too much if they were offering more of the same this autumn. See for yourself when visit Newcastle and Stockton in November.
