For Twisted Wheel, redemption and revival is not a religious concept but a CV. Born in the backwaters of Saddleworth in 2007, the young band, fronted by the feral, precocious Jonny Brown, roared into the race of indie rock with such anthems as ‘You Stole The Sun’, ‘She’s a Weapon’ and ‘Lucy The Castle’. Their irrepressible energy and ability to deliver inspired rock’n’roll gained them the support slots with Oasis, Kasabian, Paul Weller, The Courteeners, The Happy Mondays and Ian Brown to name but a few, as well as sell-outs on their first UK and European tours.
Constant touring across the UK, Europe and Japan the UK (thanks to the Grass Route movement and the big festivals) led to a solid fanbase despite the dramatic trajectory of its frontman, Jonny Brown – or maybe because of it. Twisted Wheel has indeed rocked and rolled, been smashed up, fallen off the wagon, gone solo, kicked to the kerb, frozen itself off homeless and hypothermic crashing in bushes – before finding its groove and getting back on it, full speed ahead. Last year they rolled out a relentless 60-date Snakes and Ladders/Jonny Guitar tour and a number 1 debuting EP to announce their arrival. Crowds, starved of the rigour of real rock-n-roll meat ‘n’ bones, stormed last year’s shows, all but four selling out. With growing momentum without any radio play. In 2018 the band secured major support slots on the Liam Gallagher tour, as well as playing Kendal Calling, Leeds and Reading Festivals, Shiiine Weekender, Blackthorn, Mosfest, EH6 and many others.
In 2019 the band have already been added to lineups at Leed / Reading Festivals, Kendal Calling, Mosfest, YNot, The Highest Point with more to follow.
The unlikely combination of elegance and raw inspiration, the familiar coupled with the random, make Twisted Wheel an undeniably popular act that delivers the goods in a way few bands can. The band has grown up and Brown’s song structures and lyrics are on another level, beyond haggard experience now, worn in with wisdom and wit. While last year’s ‘Snakes and Ladders’ tour was frankly about the band blowing the ladders of opportunity they were given – and the snakes which led to them falling off the board, it was also about getting back in the game and resetting the standards. The EP ‘Jonny Guitar’ demonstrated TW’s uncanny talent to maximise the elusive eternity in the ordinary and Brown’s ability to create anthems and palaces from the trash of life with its delightful documentation of addiction, despair and a very unsafe reboot. What Bowie would sound like in a bin bag with a unicorn wearing a football shirt. No autotune in sight; these are songs you feel, see and live.
But 2019 finds Twisted Wheel back like a man from the dead with tunes to make up for time lost. The Saddleworth four spoker (Harry Lavin, Ben Robinson, Ben Warwick and Jonny Brown – probably the best line up to date) are currently recording a new album in Manchester – full of new material for a summer release date with a spring tour and autumn tour dates to be announced. 2019 is their decade year – it will also be the year they change the game they broke.
Twisted Wheel were one of the hardest working bands in 2009, gaining the PRS Award for playing the most gigs of any young band. They are grafters, rock n rollers but with the edge of genuine poetry; few can forget Jonny’s ‘Bouncing Bomb’ or ‘What’s Your Name?’ but audiences will be hungry for his more poignant blues numbers on this tour. ‘We’re not just in a rock ‘n’ roll, punk box. I write a range of songs. This time, more of my poetry will come out which focuses on things that matter, a commentary on what’s going on in the world. Bands play
it safe because they don’t want to upset people. But your job as an artist is to say what others can’t, to speak the truth.’
And fans are desperate for the ragged rage and eloquent elegance Brown’s rock ‘n’roll: a brand in itself, structured like cathedrals. This is a band who, behind the froth and mayhem, are genuine craftsmen and grafters who build cities of sound out of grit, northern wit and poetry. At odds with a saccharine, insta-influenced industry, Twisted Wheel prove time and again why it will always be about the beat, the song and the people.
The recipe is rehearse, rehearse, relentlessly tour, record, rehearse, record, relentlessly tour…and so on. Twisted Wheel – it may have been bad, bent and broken but prove that growing up is not about credit cards and mortgages but bouncing back, a band with integrity, joy and experienced authority.
Twisted Wheel are back on the road from May 2019 with The Nomad Hat Tour

Twenty years after their million selling album Spartacus reached No 1 in the UK album charts, legendary Liverpool band The Farm reformed to play live again in 2010. The group who had eight top forty hit singles in the UK including Groovy Train and All Together Now that were a soundtrack for a generation, returned to the stage with their original line –up.
The Farm enjoyed worldwide success after the release of Spartacus in March 1991 on their Produce label. The album was a worldwide hit and they were signed by the legendary Seymour Stein for Sire Records in the US in 1991.
For a four year period between 1990 and 1994 The Farm toured the world and their raucous live shows became the stuff of legend. The group went their separate ways in 1995 but continued to enjoy popular appeal and their records have become all time classics.
In December 2010 the original line-up returned to play their home town at the O2 Academy, to much acclaim. The concert was meant to be a one- off to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their anthem All Together Now but was such a success that they decided they should play live again. Peter Hooton lead singer of the band commented ‘we enjoyed our gig at the Academy so much that we thought we would go out and play more.
Since then, The Farm have delighted festival audiences worldwide with their powerful live show, featuring all their hits.

’25th ANNIVERSARY TOUR’
Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.
From their Official PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, T.V. appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ amongst others), and to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 25th year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.
Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned a co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire into 2018, along with their own stand-alone tour, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule. The boys are back!
‘…Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS for Music’s Hardest Working UK Bands List’
“Limehouse Lizzy’s Wayne Ellis, an uncanny ringer for Phil Lynott…”
“entertainment for more than a decade…fantastic live music”
“if you’re sceptical about tribute acts, you won’t be after seeing Limehouse Lizzy”

Murder at the Seaside – are vocalists Sally Leigh, Heather Cassim and Guitarist Phil Johnson with the more recent addition of Matt on drums giving them a fuller sound. Between them they decided they wanted to create a mellow yet addictive acoustic sound packed full of harmony goodness.

The Total Stone Roses
Throughout the last year or so, The Total Stone Roses have been playing gigs and stunning audiences throughout the country building up a solid fan base that makes them a force to be reckoned with in the tribute scene. The band are all in their early to mid twenties, bringing the same passion, vigor, arrogance and charisma that only the young have, the old want and that cannot be faked. This same drive is what gave The Stone Roses their ‘X Factor’ and took them to the heady heights of success and fame that they achieved in the late 1980′s and early 1990′s and beyond.
The Total Stone Roses are all pro musicians that do this for a living; all players involved are top draw Leeds College of Music graduates. They strive to re-create the roses sound live and are meticulous in the recreation of their material. You will not find a better sound a like band this side of 1989!
