The Twang: channelling the spirit of Northside

Anyone else thinking that when they hear The Twang they are transported back to the dying days of baggy and the sound of Northside?

You know, you remember Northside? They were the band who were famously described by Anthony H Wilson as "destined to fill stadiums..." but of whom even more famously (or at least in our house, where a tape-recording of the remark is regularly and fondly recalled) Mark and Lard continued AHW's remark to say "...with unsold records".

There's even more on the pre-Radio years of Scrawn and Lard here.
