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.

Etheridge also showed he had an ear for a good melody on the track "Don't Wait Up."
