BBC Review

Manchester offers up its latest rock offering, with a refreshing reference to several decades past, rather than the predictable, and disconcertingly omnipotent Britpop stalwarts.

Oldham's Twisted Wheel have kicked off life in the mainstream with all the right endorsements. Liam Gallagher loves them, and they've already toured with Oasis. Next it's a headline tour of more modest venues, before warming up for Weller.

Their self-titled debut is suitably simple rock, but perhaps it's time for the brothers grim and the aging Modfather to allow bands of this ilk to step out of their shadows, and - dare it be suggested - stop coasting on the coattails of whatever young pretenders conveniently happen along.

The album owes more to punk than to the 60s sounds coveted by the scene's supposed forefathers: the pace is unrelenting, the musicianship is tight and there's no room for repetitive choruses, which generally drag songs of this genre past the pompous five-minute barrier.

Single Lucy The Castle shows off singer Jonny Brown's talent with intonation and emphasis, opening the record with the positive sell of a live feeling song. The energy rarely falters; You Stole The Sun is frantic thrashes under a raw vocal shout - a shout which includes the infinitely pleasing alliteration of the lyric ''I suck on a strawberry split''.

There are low points in the playlist: Strife owes far too much to a perceived obligation to sound like The Libertines and the Arctic Monkeys, while the lyricism in We Are Us is somewhat lax. Rhyming ''you'' and ''do'' is one thing, but returning to ''you'' for the third line can be perceived as an unfathomable lack of creativity.

Overall, the sound on this album is more intricate than can reasonably be expected from a three-piece rock group, and there's well conveyed passion that creates lingering longing to see the Twisted Wheel in action. --Keira Burgess

This is not a bad album in any way, shape or form but it is singularly lacking in any originality. Twisted Wheel have clearly done their homework and swooped like magpies to grab ideas from other bands that have hit prominence in recent years.

As such, there are tracks that sound like The Arctic Monkeys, or The Libertines or The Pigeon Detectives with others sound a bit like a mash up of all three. Not that this is a problem, if you are going to steal, steal from the best. Imitation is the sincere form of flattery after all.

Trouble is that whilst the songs sound derivative they don't quite hit the heights of the aforementioned bands material. There is no killer tune on here that blows you away. Plenty of perfectly agreeable listens but nothing that worms into your skull and gets you humming it for hours afterwards.

Like I said at the start of my review, it is not a poor album - but it does just plonk itself into the middle tier of its genre. Neither good nor bad, so basically ok.

I would stress that the ingredients are here for Twisted Wheel to go up several notches. If they can make a bit more of an identity for themselves and find that awesome hook or chorus a few times they could be very good indeed.

One to keep an eye out for then, but this album is probably only worth picking up if it's at a good price and you're a fan of the bands listed earlier but fancy some different tracks.

Reviewing conventional guitar bands is difficult unless they are unique in terms of approach or vocal style and unfortunately Twisted Wheel have neither, which is a shame because they aren't bad...they just arent terribly original either. Their album is one of those where you find yourself mostly training to remember what track each of theirs reminds you of (usually something by The Frattellis, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Weller or The Dandy Warhols). Their only song that transends that - for me - is "You Stole The Sun"; a brilliantly trashy, hi energy stomper with a Kings of Leon riff, beery verse and shouty chorus. It's immediate and I love it, if they had that energy on the rest of the album it would be a clear case of "I'm In". A definite case of Could Do Better.

Hard to review this lot without using the word 'attitude'. That's not to say they don't have some good tunes, they do, but most noticeably they have that cockiness of youth exemplified by early sneery Oasis, Pistols, Small Faces and dating back at least to the Angry Young Men of late 50s British literature.

The first two tracks are bold statements of intent and if you don't like the cd by then you may not want to keep listening because it's pretty similar fare.

One track sounds like the Fratellis re-writing Don't Look Back In Anger, another - You Stole The Sun - is scabrously funny, catchy and slightly disturbed.

I can't quite work out why this album hasn't had a higher profile and broken through, perhaps the media are tired of young northern lads with 'attitude' - there I go again - but if you're into any of the bands mentioned above, or the Arctic Monkeys, then you might well enjoy this.

This is a great debut album from what may be a promising band for the future. Previous reviews bemoan the fact that they sound at times like A.Monkeys and others but back in his day Weller was nickin' riffs from the Beatles, Oasis do the same now. There is surely no problem wanting emulate the music from your influences? Twisted Wheel do it and do it well there are some wicked songs here. Other review mention their age and the fact the new bands are not so good now well I think this is misguided nostalgic nonsense, there are only so many chords you can play on the guitar and there have been a lot of great riffs played over 50 years of popular music there are bound to be sounding the same along the way, its how they are played and the context they are played that is important Twisted Wheel have the attitude for sure may sound like you have heard similar stuff else ware but this is worth a listen.

An inbred cross between an early The Clash and an angst fuelled fracturing Oasis, Twisted Wheel attempts to re-ignite a taste for the manic; you might think that particular taste of dissent is the seed bed of creativity, but it means it's all been done before.

Bloody teenage angst! Anybody with any self respect just wants to scream `Get over it!'. The problem is it sells; to anybody under the age of 20, and those older who think bad attitudes and swearing are still cool.

Yeah, there's a bit of acoustic creativity in the likes of `Bouncing Bomb', and the Brit-pop notes of `Lucy the Castle' but they sit uncomfortably alongside their punky cousins. A few really good standalone singles but a shaky album.

I wish good things for the lads but forgive my scepticism if I lay bets on a two album stint; but only time will tell whether it'll be the start of a maturing band or a quick buck for SonyBMG.

Twisted Wheel might be the subject of a lot of hype, but when that's all swept away what's left?

What's left is a thrashy indie band doing that "no-nonsense-straight-ahead-rock" thing. Young men they may be, but there's a long shadow behind them - near and distinct it looks like the Dirty Pretty Things or the Arctic Monkeys (especially on Strife); further back the shadow looks like The Clash (on Oh What Have You Done?) or Stiff Little Fingers and at the indistinct, distant edges you can just about make out Dr Feelgood, Mott The Hoople and, faintly on the horizon, The Groundhogs (Bad Candy) and The Kinks (everywhere).

The first half of the album makes up in energy what it lacks in imagination and is fun in a shallow sort of way. It's only in the second half that Twisted Wheels decide to stretch themselves. Bouncing Bomb, with moments reminiscent of
