Formed in Melbourne’s inner South East, from the ashes of original angry, young band Junk and Jill, that featured various musicians and produced a couple of independent releases, Twin Ages has come a long way conquering everything you could throw at a band, from a broken hand in a broken down van to dating every Yoko in Melbourne.
Their passion is now supported by an arsenal of stories presented to you in the form of cut throat rock and blues. Twin Ages have played some of Melbourne’s most prestigious venues, (Espy, Cherry Bar, The Vineyard, The Hi- Fi Bar, The Brunswick hotel, Revolver, etc, etc) to large crowds. The unique sound these guys produce is unlike anything else coming out of this generation, combining a throwback to traditional Blues, a lot of rock and even some heavy undertones. Their style is one of a kind and marks them for future fortunes. ‘Sabertooth’, their 2nd release is already receiving airplay in Melbourne, and the new stripped back 3 piece line up is, “the best they’ve ever sounded” according to their fans.Twin Ages pedigree is formidable, featuring two sons of Melbourne’s legendary Blues Band from the 80’s and 90’s.
“The song ‘Outlaws’ took 5 minutes to write. It was inspired by the turbulent series of events from the beginning of the year. From Angus bringing a child into the world, Rob with the black dog and a loss of a great friend to suicide as we continued to tattoo a name for ourselves gig after gig.
Then like a slap in the face, right at the peak of life’s irritating bullshit something amazing happened…
The city we endeavoured to conquer and have lived in our entire lives began to love us back. This song is about obsession, and no matter how comfortable the pull of a normal reality may tug we will never let it go. So like a holstered pistol we are drawing one of the filthiest blues rock songs about this messed up journey as a token of our love.” – Twin Ages
Without sounding like an exhausted quote, through the passion, anger and pain, a Twin Ages performance is nothing short of a good night on the edge. WhatTwin Ages do is NEW, ORIGINAL, and is “Rock ’n’ Roll”.
