Drinking In LA
Check out this live video of The Twang performing a live version of new double-A side single Drinking in LA, recorded live at Manchester Academy last month. The Twang's new double-A side single, 'Push the Ghosts / Drinking in LA', is out 26 November 2007.
Tipped by seemingly everyone at the start of the year, the five lads from Birmingham set about living up to such extravagant praise from the off whilst keeping their feet firmly on the ground. First stop was the recording of debut album, the gold certified Ã¢Â€Â˜Love It When I Feel Like ThisÃ¢Â€Â™ in Wolverhampton with long term associate Gavin Monaghan eschewing the big studios to keep it real. Next stop was a hectic touring schedule that saw the bands fanbase explode and further saw the lads go to the people across the UK, a decision that has seen The Twang retain some of the most loyal and committed fans of the moment.
As The Twang journey around the UK on their biggest tour yet and another sell out to add to the list the boys have re-imagined one of the stand out tracks from the live set and the album for a single release on November 26th.
Built around a cheeky sample of the bassline for Salt n PepaÃ¢Â€Â™s Ã¢Â€Â˜Push ItÃ¢Â€Â™ by Jon, Ã¢Â€Â˜Push The GhostsÃ¢Â€Â™ has been twisted a little to emphasise the dance floor nature of groove and come out as a sparkling floor filler for the winter months ahead. It seems even more appropriate given that this is a song about their ambitions for the band that it arrives to cap what has been for all five the best year of their lives. The single comes as a Double A with the bandÃ¢Â€Â™s praised re-interpretation of Bran Van 3000Ã¢Â€Â™s Ã¢Â€Â˜Drinking In LAÃ¢Â€Â™ for Radio OneÃ¢Â€Â™s 40th birthday celebrations.
