The best kept secret in music


"The Turnstyles"

t h e t u r n s t y l e s are an impressive bunch boasting equally impressive resumes. The band felt they were solid enough to record a tight CD of simultaneous playing and singing, a recording technique which is rarely used today. Suede wanted to "show the core talent of the band and capture the excitement of four lads working together to make their sound." The finished product, "Live In The Studio," is a solid recording of studio polish blended with the power of live performance. Their sound is fresh, catchy and intelligent. Not to be missed. Lead Vocalist Suede is founder of Darwin Records as well as a smooth crooner and songwriter.
