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.

2019 finds Twisted Wheel back like a man from the dead with tunes to make up for time lost. The Saddleworth four spoker (Harry Lavin, Ben Robinson, Ben Warwick and Jonny Brown – probably the best line up to date) are currently recording a new album in Manchester – full of new material for a summer release date with a spring tour and autumn tour dates to be announced. 2019 is their decade year – it will also be the year they change the game they broke.

The recipe is rehearse, rehearse, relentlessly tour, record, rehearse, record, relentlessly tour…and so on. Twisted Wheel – it may have been bad, bent and broken but prove that growing up is not about credit cards and mortgages but bouncing back, a band with integrity, joy and experienced authority.

Twisted Wheel are back on the road from May 2019 with The Nomad Hat Tour and will play Upstairs at Whelans on Friday 4th October.
