ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TWISTERBAIT - I SPY
GO directly to this bands website, DO NOT pass go, DO NOT collect £200! Probably the best 6 track mini album i've heard in ages - THIS BAND ROCK!
(The Overflow Underground Music Network, UK)

HOTDAMN! I just LOVE a good Clap Track! (BUT I HATE BUSH)
For those of you whose mind's are in the gutter (not me) a clap track is not a nasty STD, but rather it is that ***magical*** moment when, milling about somewhere in Songland (cleverly located between Ponyland and Legoland), GOD sees fit to have PEOPLE CLAPPING in a shizzly way.

So I just got this new EP from someone in a land far far away (that I lived in once when I was still wild and crazy) called "I Spy" from a band named Twisterbait. I'm not so sure that I dig their band name but, who in the hell knows, it just might grow on me.

Now, what I like about them is that they are funny, and they laugh at themselves. Really they do. Taking all the world's shit too seriously is leading many people towards the DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE.

Yes, America sux. Yes, there are a lot of fucked up people here. Yes, they are very self-satisfied ROLLING about in their delusional-land called Mediocrityville (White House) but come on, millions of people did not vote for that cunter. Please, REMEMBER THIS FACT WHEN YOU ARE TEMPTED TO HATE ALL AMERICANS.

YES OUR Government officials are screwy, and sometimes DOWNRIGHT scary, but think about what it is like to live here knowing that your President is not the man that you voted for, and that he is in fact perpetuating an agenda that causes you real emotional pain when you are FORCED to see it in opperation's REDICULOUSLY TITLED (Enduring Freedom?), and in knowing that there are MILLIONS of people worldwide who HATE you simply because of where you were born.

Make a distinction between the American Government and the American People (non-Bushites) who are continuously and genuinely horrified by what is being perpetuated by Bush's foreign policy.

Think of them as citizens of *The United States of Canada (Ponyland, Legoland, Songland etcetera), and NOT Jesusland; whose capitol city of Mediocrityville is admittedly bursting at the seams with more shithead's than ever before.

Phew, did I just get political? sniff... Yes, I've been watching the BBC.

Back to the music that helps me make it through moment's such as these...

In any case, on this EP there is a song called "Cannonball" and it has a really FAN-FUCKIN-TASTIC clap track intro... I can't help it... I love the clapping... and the fun-ness of it...

"Popstars" is a diggable song as well... very irreverent.

BUT CANNONBALL... YEAH...

I'm not thinking that, as of yet, I across the board love this band, but that song, goodness, it just does something to me... way deep down inside where the FUN-Meter resides, and the Fun-Meter's needle goes all wiggly and squirmy when that song's a clappin' away.

For all you musicians out there...PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF YOU'VE GOT WHAT I NEED... add more clap tracks. The kiddies dig it.

(As a nerdy music aside, for those of you who like this kind of info, Simon Hanson (Death in Vegas) mixed this disc)

If you wanna check it out, then go here: http://www.Twisterbait.com

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH... KEEP ON CLAPPIN' Pony people!

Hate BUSH, HATE WAR, Hate Stupidity, Hate Badly Brewed coffee, but don't hate EVERYONE here in the *USofC. Love, Love, Love makes the disc spin round so shimmy, shimmy, shimmy... (big SMACKING kisses for you all)

We received the Twisterbait CD and added it to our rotation. It's charting in
our top 30, so it's definately doing well, and it should for a while.

I did indeed get the Twisterbait EP, and have been spinning it. It's
very interesting I have to say :P I really like the blend of spoken
word, industrial, and hard rock. I've gotten positive response from
the EP overall, since it's simply well-composed and pleasing to listen
to. Keep up the good work! I'll definitely be interested in the full
album.

After two weeks of level-pegging with Geist on the totallywired demo

was extremely close! Thanks so much for putting your track up - look forward to hearing more in the future.
Cheers,

I have played it on the show already... I'll see if the music controller fancies it on rotation. Oh, would you consider it a demo? Just that I might review it in is this music? but maybe you'd rather wait for the full release to be done as a proper album?
Another thought - would you be interested in putting a track on our cover CD sometime?

Australian/European radio reaction to E.P. sent September 2004:

Australia

Received the EP in the post this week and there are some more fine tracks on there, I must say. Apart from "I Spy", I especially like "Get On Our Bus", "Cannonball" and "Dead Man" (which to me has the strongest message on the EP besides the headline track). You can expect a new track from the EP to make it onto the show on Sept 23 (next programme recording is next week). Thanks again for sending it, and make sure you keep in touch! :)

anyone is going to distribute it in Australia. I particularly like
"Popstars". We'll stay in touch.

Thank you very much for sending us the finished product of your ep.
well done. but do you really think the sound is alternative rock, as mentioned on
your webside? i think of it more in terms of retro wave'n'gothic.
to me it sounds more like a FAD GADGET-clone than like a rebirth of the
seattle-connection. what do you think?
but i have another question: is it possible to provide me with a functionable link to a mp3-file of one or more of the tracks?
i think it would be great to put this link in my forthcoming review.
if not, can i get permission to produce mp3-files of at least one of the
songs? would be great.
please answer and have a nice time.
