Recently SOLD OUT! This cd is now back in stock, and we're excited to share it with you!
The Twenty 20s are a six-piece 50's inspired, surf-lounge-club-cocktail-americana band, they are from Melbourne's most inventive, swingin' and quirky musical avenues and they are the hot pick of Blues & Roots, Swing, Americana, Classical, Big Band and Zydeco music. This album has atmospheric originals, surprising covers and a small selection of historical American classic songs all arranged and performed as a collaborative effort - and cameo appearances from well known and loved cats from the Melbourne scene. A record for falling in love.
Songs made famous by Buddy Holly, The Buzzcocks, Julie London, Peggy Lee, Devo and Paul Williamson's Hammond Combo.. Band members - Hetty Kate, Dale Lindrea, Steve Purcell, Vinnie Bourke, Dean Hilson and Sharky Ramos.
Run your fingers over soft leather seats, listening to Bowie in a '59 Chrysler driving along a moonlit sunset boulevard, underwater dancing to whalesong.. laser beams and lip gloss...
Recorded all in the one room, over one year, in busy Belmar Studios in Altona - by band leader, bassist and composer Steve Purcell (Boof!, The Pearly Shells) mixed by Steve Purcell and Nicky Bomba (Bomba, John Butler Trio) and mastered by David Briggs (Little River Band).
