Album Review

Being touted as the future of indie music and the next big thing, by the music media is a difficult thing to live up to and the debut album by The Twang, Love It When I Feel Like This arrived in mid 2007 with a lot to prove, but after crashing into the charts at no.3, it quickly plummeted downwards. Produced by Gavin Monaghan at the Magic Garden studios in Wolverhampton it followed the pattern set by the singles "Wide Awake" and "Either Way" with lead guitarist Stuart Hartland sounding like The Edge of U2 and the jangly background guitars are The Happy Mondays circa 1989 particularly on the opening track "Ice Cream Sunday" and "Loosely Dancing." Phil Etheridge wrote about life as he saw it from the working class streets of Birmingham with humour throughout, reminiscent of fellow Brummie Mike Skinner of The Streets, chronicling the ordinary life of lad culture, going out shopping during the day and clubbing by night. There are influences from many guitar led rock bands including Oasis, The Smiths and even Big Country on the track "Push The Ghosts." Virtually all lads use swearing to emphasize their thoughts but as always it loses its impact when used to excess as on the track "The Neighbour." Etheridge also showed he had an ear for a good melody on the track "Don't Wait Up."

Working class heros

Ever since I heard 'Wide Awake' blaring out of a badly tuned radio I knew these boys were something special. Full of positive attitude, whimsical lyrics and belting anthems this album typifies what makes rock and roll so special, in a way that only a British band could do. With baggy percussion, funky baselines and melodic guitar riffs that a young John squire would be proud of, musically the Twang sound reminiscent of past legends, namely The Stone Roses, but brought into the 00’s with a rhythm that sounds more like funky house as opposed to early acid dance. Vocally The Twang scream attitude, ready to take the world on, which is so refreshing when compared to the bed-wetting attitude of most indie bands today who like to cry about how scared / sorry they are for this and that, mentioning no names (Keane / Snowpatrol). There is a great variation of songs on their debut from the melancholy ‘Two Lovers’ to the aggressive testosterone-filled ‘The Neighbour’ to the loved-up come-down insecurity of ‘Either Way’. There is not one weak song on this album. These lads are true working class heroes destined to save rock and roll from the mundane and lame. Oasis pass down your crown, The Twang have arrived. Lets ‘ave it!
