In the dingy basement of a 1920’s cinema on the edge of Sheffield, Chicago natives Twin Peaks played the first of their far too brief run of 5 UK shows – there’s no better venue for their brand of bawling garage insanity and to road-test tracks from their forthcoming album Down In Heaven. The bluesy Lennon-groove of ‘Walk to the One You Love’ and giddy ‘Butterfly’ feel like old friends besides howling lo-fi anthems ‘I Found A New Way’ and ‘Making Breakfast’, all fuelled by Red Stripe and the raucous crowd, who frequently spilled over the monitors onto the cramped stage. Polished by no means, but close to perfect.
