The Twang Tickets
The Twang: new tour and new music
With their baggy sound and laddish demeanour, Brummie favourites The Twang are determined to keep the Britpop flag flying. Known for inspiring huge singalongs of their hits during live shows, the group have built a cult following over half a decade on the scene. The band played an 11-date UK tour in 2017 to mark the 10 year anniversary of their seminal debut album "Love It When I Feel Like This", and continue to record and play live.

The Twang: still going strong after 10-year anniversary
After meeting on a music technology course in 2001, Phil Etheridge and Jon Watkin began touring around local pubs under the name 'Neon Twang'. The duo swapped instrumental duties on tracks before deciding to add new members. Eventually, the group signed to indie label B-Unique, also home of the Kaiser Chiefs at that time. By 2007 they had become the subject of a Radio 1 documentary and were soon championed by the NME, scooping the Radar gong at the magazine's awards ceremony that year.
Riding a wave of hype, debut single "Wide Awake" hit the UK top 20, while their debut album Love It When I Feel Like This crashed the top three. Their influences - the Britpop and Madchester movements - are strongly defined in their music, with frontman Martin Saunders' strong Midlands accent shining through in his impassioned vocals. Cultivating a passionate live following, the quintet has become so legendary in their hometown that they perform a popular annual Christmas party at the O2 Academy Birmingham.
Second album Jewellery Quarter (2009) was another top 20 success. Named after the area in Birmingham in which the band were living, several of the record's tracks were used on sports broadcasts. "Twit Twoo" was used on Match of the Day; "Barney Rubble" and "Back Where We Started" were used on ITV during football matches; while "Reap What You Sow" and "Ice Cream Sundae" have also been used at various times on the BBC.
