Tongue Tied Twin - one man blues trash garage punk rock'n'roll // Winterthur, Switzerland // http://www.tonguetiedtwin.com
Tongue Tied Twin is a far travelled outlaw one man band who plays dirty blues and wild garage rock'n'roll with loads of infectious positive energy.
Famous for distorted bottleneck slide guitar riffs played on handmade guitars, accompanied by stomping kickdrum, battered hi-hat and distorted vocals along with some wailing blues harp, Tongue Tied Twin will blow your mind. This one man alone is delivering the power and noisy presence of a full band, and he's doing so with a big smile on his face. Tongue Tied Twin built many of his instruments himself, such as cigar box guitars, canjos, an electrified suitcase kickdrum, a primitive loop-station megaphone among other things. Tongue Tied Twin is part of a very lively international one man band scene. On his travels he shared the stage with many other great one man and one woman bands, such as Sheriff Perkins, Thee Mysterious Asthmatic Avenger, Chicken Diamond, Reverend Beat-Man, King Automatic, Urban Junior, Becky Lee and Drunk Foot, One Man Destruction Show, Chuck Violence, Sacha Love, Cello Inferno, Slim Wild Boar, Extreme Blues Dog, Molly Gene One Whoaman Band, Sedlmeir, Harp Explosion, Giancane, Slimguib's and others. Tongue Tied Twin performed in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, Netherlands, England, Wales, Scotland, Serbia, Croatia, Portugal and Italy. Occasionally Tongue Tied Twin can also be found busking on the streets of Europe, kicking his suitcase and sliding on is handcrafted guitars.
