A Kind Of Awe Reverence And Wonder

Twisted Nerve




A Kind Of Awe And Reverence And Wonder is the new compilation from Manchester’s very own homemade and house-proud, singular minded and independent ‘non-record-label’ Twisted Nerve.

Having catered to a modest community of lateral thinking music lovers for ten eventful cold summers Andy Votel along with Damon Gough (aka Badly Drawn Boy) and Doug Shipton (stalwart of sister label Finders Keepers) have returned to the original T.N. garden shed to cultivate a new stream of self-sufficient musical misfits bringing you a catalogue of contemporary hybrid-genres ranging from Welsh Rare Beat to Anatolian-acid-folk and zygotic-zither-music.

Lovingly curated with sinful pride and unsubstantiated self confidence, Twisted Nerve unveil their answer to the colossal cut price compilations that prog-rock labels released religiously before many of us graduated to full-length-pants. Here you will find tracks from Twisted Nerve artists old and new, including previously unreleased tracks from the likes of Voice Of The Seven Woods, Samandtheplants and 9Bach.
