Feeling a bit camera shy


Back off bitch, some punks get shot and some get rich. In the track Kiss Ride Kill, those words spill into the song with a laid back demeanor, so as not to threaten, but simply to state a fact. Harsh reality has always been a fixture in rock n roll, and Twin Wrecks the Memory blast it out with a ferocious non-chalance that creates an infectious take it, or take it attitude.

Loosely formed in late 2002 by art/school rockers Ryan Paveza (guitar) and Dan Sullivan (vocals, guitar), the band quickly found solid ground with songs such as: Alcohol and Rock N Roll, Burn Out and Dirty American Girl. The sound reflects an era when early Guns N Roses and Sonic Youth took hold as a counter-measure to spineless nice guy music, similar to whats happening to music today.

Marcellus Salerni (bass), a Pittsburgh native, and Rob Medinger (drums), a south sider, get a grip on the rhythm section with enough big rock sentiment and 70s grit that allow this Chicago group to drive their sound into the audience head-on with intensity and guile. From the Empty Bottle to the Brooklyn critics, Twin Wrecks the Memory have received acclaim for their blue-collar blend of rock, punk, and booze. As the lyrics address the gangsters, strippers, skate-punks, and drunks, theres
a subtle reminder that were all in this together. In an insecure world where everyones full of shit, it makes it all fun and worthwhile.
