Biography

22-20s are a British rock band, originally formed in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, who disintegrated scarcely two years after their acclaimed 2004 self titled debut LP. In 2008, a reconstituted version of the band reformed around the founding nucleus of singer/guitarist Martin Trimble, bassist Bartup and drummer James Irving, adding Dan Hare on guitar and backing vocals.

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The 22-20s may claim they're not rooted in the blues, but it takes roughly one minute's worth of listen to any of their songs to see that they may be stretching things the truth just a bit. From the jarring squall of their dirty fuzz guitars to the massively reverberating drum sound, the blues in its Hives-and-White-Stripes-garage-rock glory is present and correct, and a treat for fans of either of those bands. The dynamic of the 22-20s equates to a whirlwind of sound, sweeping up everything in its heavy path, very reminiscent of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club but with slightly more definition. The added bonus of having keyboards in the mix increases the band's range, but they still manage to retain the edge of rawness that benefits all bands whose primary objective is to make you want to groove. If there's one complaint to this album, it's that the songs maintain a certainly predictability- either the constant tempo of the heaviest songs, or the usual weakness of the acoustic tracks like "Friends". This may wear on some, but the ferocity and talent of the band manage to hold attention for anyone with a passing interest in today's garage rock scene. --Thom Allott

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 22 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
Well written, well crafted and beautifully performed.
This is a debut that ranks along side the the debut albums of The Stone Roses, Blur & Oasis.
This is bluesy without being blues and rocky without being rock, it meets the two genres half way and really works.
The album kicks in with "The Devil In Me" which is a wondeful track and the standard never drops. All the singles are on here and this deserves to be massive. If you want to take a chance on some new music, liked the singles or you're a fan of the Stones then I'd recommend this CD 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock n' Roll isn't dead after all!! 16 Dec 2004
By D. Gore
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I came across this album purely by chance and it turned out to be a stroke of good luck.
The style isn't original, but the songs are special enough for you not to care. There's certainly a Doors influence in there, with a raw, unpolished sound that works astonishingly well and, for some weird reason, reminds me of The Animals.
"Devil In Me" is a cracking start to the album and, when followed by "Such A Fool", you know your in for a treat. There are a couple of tracks that take a few listens to get used to and "The Things That Lovers Do" is the weak track on the album. However the icing on this particular cake is "Shoot Your Gun" which has to be one of the finest tracks I've heard in ages.
All in all, a fantastic debut that deserves the plaudits it's received from the media.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent debut! 20 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
First off, I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of the White Stripes or BRMC, though I am a fan of rock in general. I saw the 22-20's at the Isle of Wight Festival, and decided then based on their passionate live performance and the individual strengths of their songs that when the album was released, I'd pick it up.
The album goes from strength to strength, culminating on heavy, riff-laden tracks like 'Why don't you do it for me?' and the single '22 days', which had me dancing through the kitchen whilst doing the washing-up!
I'll admit it's not perfect, it's weaker moments tending towards the slower, for example 'Friends', which could have come straight off a 'best of Country' album - a genre of which I am not too fond. However, it is an excellent debut, and highly reccommended, if you're a fan of the bluesy rock particularly, but even if not it's riffs will have you jumping around like a little kid!

The annals of rock music are littered with bands that after impressive first efforts proceed to churn out mediorcrity after lifeless mediocrity, never recapturing the intital spark of greatness, until quietly slipping into relative obscurity. Equally, there are those who make the arguably greater mistake and decide to split before ever realising their full potential, or at least the pressures of band-life reach such levels where it becomes impossible to continue as a collective... and then slip into relative obscurity.

UK blues/rockers 22-20s are a prime potential example of the latter.

Their eponymous debut (and as it turns out, last) album, is a riff-laden eclectic mix of blues, rock, folk and country that sounds fresh and invigorating despite the band`s obvious influences.

The album bursts into life with the pacey Devil in Me and the relentless pounder Such a Fool - both great introductions to lead singer/guitarist Martin Trimble's raspy, vigorous laments and ear for a good riff.

The raucous 22 Days, with its thumping basslines and distorted vocals is 3 mins of pure adrenaline, while the sublimely mellow slide guitars and heartfelt lyrics of the beautiful Friends gives us a much needed respite before its back to the boot-stomping with Why Don't You Do It For Me? - sounding like an amped-up Kings of Leon at a hillbilly wedding - and the muscular menace of Shoot Your Gun.

Unfortunately, the second half of the album does't quite live up to the promise of the first - with the dreamy Lou Reed-esque The Things That Lovers Do seeming at odds with the tempo and conviction of the previous tracks, and the band committing the cardinal sin of ending a record weakly with a rather lame country effort, reminiscent of a below par Dylan.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best bands around today. 8 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
I first heard the 22-20s on Later with Jools Holland about 18 months ago, and I was blown away - their sound was rumbling and intense, full of energy. They played with great skill, but with rough edges in all the right places, and most of all, steeped in the blues in a way that four twenty-year olds have no right to be. I tried to buy the album online that night, and to my amazement found that there wasn't one - disaster! I consoled myself with the singles and waited.
This album is well worth the wait! It features some absolutely brilliant tracks, and the band are on top form throughout. The first plus is the production - it is polished enough, without taking away the raw energy - in fact it seems a bit like a live performance at times, only much tighter.
The drums and bass work together to devastating effect on the frantic "Why Don't You Do It For Me?", with the guitar snarling in the chorus, and powerful lyrics. "Devil in Me" is perhaps the best known of these tracks, and it's a great one, rhythmically complex, with relentless groove, and a gorgeous distorted guitar sound. "Shoot Your Gun" is a dark, angry piece that hints at a deeper side to the group - the lyrics are superb, and the arrangement is accomplished and emphatic.
This album is a great opener, demonstrating much more musical depth and experience than most. This is a powerful statement of intent, without a really weak number throughout, and I await their second album with excitement. Do yourself a favour!
