Product Notes

Twinkie is a co-ed four-piece band from Derby, UK with a well-established live reputation, along with numerous glowing reviews of self-released and small label singles and EPs in the past. On their first full-length CD, Twinkie let's loose with it's full array of alternately crunching and ringing guitars, vocals that vary from swooping to quirky, along with pounding drums and bass-all the while refusing to abandon a pop underpining. The dual vocal team of male bassist Moo and female guitarist Debbie (last names unknown!) give the band a distinctive dimension. Often compared to The Pixies, Twinkie remains a unique band that has finally put it all together in the studio. A bonus unlisted 15th track adds to the value of the package. Reviews Pop-A-Go-Go: 'Rampaging white-noise pop pixies...ramshackling all the way, just how we like it.' E-P Magazine: 'Twinkie confirming their magpie approach to style by chucking a dreamy guitar blur over a Buzzcocks chord change and rattling along at high pop revs for three minutes on TK-1 whilst Mondomingo is a bass-heavy churn that resembles fellow-Derbyites, and Twinkie-supporters, Cable with backing vox. Two corkers.' Tasty Fanzine: 'They may have the most tweesome name in tweedom, but mark Twinkie down as anorak wearers at your peril. Live, Twinkie are peerless. While they come on like a heavy metal Lungleg, then I, for one, will continue to buy their records. Possibly the East Midlands' best kept secret.' Atomic Duster: 'Fresh from supporting Fugazi no less in front of 3000 fans, the way Twinkie connected to the audience at the Lamplighters is a credit to their charismatic stagecraft. Great visually, combining indie chic with a stylish 1940s moustache provided by the singer/ bassist, with a bit of David Byrne eccentricity thrown in for good measure. However Twinkie are not merely good lookers - their sonic range goes from earth shattering chord progressions and guitar riffs, to the subtleties you'd associate with Portishead at their most endearing. Vocals combine masculine resonance with feminine softness - the perfect mix. See this band!'
