I first encountered the Wizards of Twiddly whilst living in the North West of

England in the early 1990s and was immediately smitten. Their music was

intelligent and yet humorous, complex and yet toe-tappingly catchy. Never taking

itself seriously. At the time, their lineup featured a non-musician on stage -

who'd create crude sketches during the tunes and reveal them to the audience at

the end each piece. He left the band in 1993, but otherwise their lineup

remained intact from the earliest days until they went their separate ways after

performing a couple of tours with Kevin Ayers, playing both support slots and as

his backing band. They then variously involved themselves with other activities

including theatre, Zappa tributes, and guest appearances with other bands, the

Twiddly brass boys contributed to the startling Super Furry Animals debut and

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci 'Barafundle' album.

But it seems the band which had dispelled after those Ayers gigs in the mid 90s

was a source of much pleasure to many audiences and (presumably) the band

memebers themselves too. Ten years on, they began gigging again sporadically,

then a couple of CD releases came - a live recording "Live at the Zanzibar"

(2006) and the archival "The Uppendium (Volume 3)" (2007). There was talk of new

recordings, but we've had to wait until the very end of 2010 for the new

recordings to be released. Would the new tunes compare to "Large Geographical

Features", "Incapable of Clear Thought", "Inarticulated Lorry", "Sex, Drugs and

Morris Dancing", "Septic Tank", "Anti-septic tank" and all the rest?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album 9 Sep 2011
Format:MP3 Download
What a great album! So refreshing and innovative but also holding some strong melodies and intelligent lyrics. Faves are Adverse Camber and Hooverman which is one of those songs which sends tingles down your spine - it would be one of my desert island discs!
