Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release from the Welsh garage-punk band. The debut LP, Utopia was recorded a stone's throw from the sea in Porthcawl, summer 2014. Utopia, a Greek word which means "there is no such place". Twisted sings about the existential crisis in it's bones. It is terrified of the tremendous force of love. It knows about being young and lost, the push and pull of pleasant towns. Twisted is angry at street harassment and the stigmatization of mental health. Twisted take influence from many eras of punk's history; the lovesick guitar melodies of 70s UK punk (Buzzcocks, Elvis Costello, The Jam) the flagellating introspection of mid-80s DC's Revolution Summer (Rites Of Spring, Gray Matter, Rain) and US dark punk (The Wipers, The Crucif***s, No Trend), the exasperated vocal of early-90s UK's Huggy Bear, and the postmillennial crisp-drumming garage-rage of Jay Reatard, Marked Men, Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Parquet Quartz.
