February 24th, 2012:
Lots of news happening here at Twistworthy HQ. I'm pleased to announce TWO new records coming out soon on TWISTWORTHY:
TW-13: WEIRD PARTY - "The Secret Lives Of Men" 7" EP
Weird Party are from Houston, and feature ex-members of the FATAL FLYING GUILLOTEENS (Estrus Records, Frenchkiss Records, GSL Records) and SUGAR SHACK (Estrus Records). Much like a slap in the face, or a kick in the crotch, WEIRD PARTY came out of the gates with the charge of a thousand knaves, resulting in their debut self-released 7" last year. Imagine the terseness of the Guilloteens mixed with the rock'n roll riffage of the mighty Sugar Shack covered in a layer of heavy… and you might have something close to WEIRD PARTY. This four song EP won't disappoint.
TW-14: THE BEST - "Black Triangle" b/w "King Of The Underground" 45rpm
Max Vandever (of the FLESH LIGHTS) and Orville Neeley (of THE OBN III's/BAD SPORTS) started writing songs together sometime in 2011 as they discovered they both had song ideas that didn't necessarily fit into the "sound" of their other bands. This resulted in the formation of THE BEST! Musically, THE BEST is more straight up rock 'n roll than their other bands, incorporating the catchiest power-pop hooks with ferocious rock tunes. In addition to Vandever (vocals/guitar) and Neeley (vocals/bass), the members also include Jason (guitar, also from THE OBN III's) and Caleb (drums, from the BAD LOVERS) to round out the band.
I'm shooting for both of these records to be out around the March/April timeframe. Both of these first pressings will be limited to 300 copies! More info SOON!
