Twerps!

Twerps!

Day 15 of this unofficial Aussie Music Month trawl through the op-shop pop of the Australian pop underground returns to Melbourne for some loose jangle pop from Twerps.

Twerps released their self-titled debut LP on Melbourne’s Chapter Music back in 2011 but it took a while for it to filter down to me here in Dunedin, NZ. Once again there’s a lot of early Clean in the DNA of Twerps. How many bands and songs can trace their origins back to The Clean and, in particular, their “Anything Could Happen”? Well, here’s another anyway. I’m not complaining.

Twerps are guitarist/vocalist Marty Frawley, bassist Rick Milovanovic, guitarist (and vocalist on this particular song) Julia MacFarlane and drummer Alex MacFarlane. There are rumours of another album on the way too so hopefully it wont take me 3 years to discover the next one.
