Twinkie

Now, this is a song I heard on the radio not too many years ago and after liking the start of it, I recorded the rest. I know absolutely nothing about the band except that, from the below YouTube clip, they played a gig recently... Anyway, I just found the song TK1 from YouTube without a video but that doesn't matter, I can share all of it with you. Does anyone know anything about them as it's a great, catchy indie-rock tune?

Twinkie - TK1

A crappy sound quality live version of the song.

hello,
this band is from the Nottingham/Derby area, I have seen them several times, they are pretty good.
The drummer is 'Elvis' from the excellent band Lords, whose second album will be coming out this year through Gringo records.. check them out if you don't know them.

They are a great Derby band and sadly the recent gig was their last ever, as 2 members have relocated to Ireland, 1 member is a mommy and the singer is finding success on the comedy circuit as his alter-ego Doctor Coca-Cola McDonalds (been on BBC3 etc)

Thanks for the info on this excellent band. I posted what sounds like a slightly better mp3 via Avebury Records, if you're interested. I just discovered your excellent blog and look forward to future visits. Cheers from Texas!

BTW, those songs by The Mighty Stars are pretty cool, too.
