Creating wildly ambitious music from a vast and colourful palette with large chunks of humour and theatricality.

New album 'People with Purpose' out now (Jan 2011) on the ffp label avaiable from the usual download stores as well as the band's online store at... burning shed http://www.burningshed.com/store/wizardsoftwiddly Formed in Liverpool 1988 the Wizards of Twiddly stuck out like a sore thumb ! Creating wildly ambitious music from a vast and colourful palette with large chunks of humour and theatricality. On their own Fracture for Pleasure label they produced two idiosyncratic albums 'independent legs' (1992) and 'man made self' (1994). Largely ignored by the mainstream music press ('Scouse Gets' NME 1993) they managed to attract a collection of committed supporters including Cardiacs' Tim Smith, Radio One's Mark and Lard and the late,great Vivian Stanshall. In 1994 the Wizards of Twiddly embarked on a year long collaboration with the very legendary Kevin Ayers. In 2000 Market Square records released the live 'Turn the Lights Down -Live in London 1995' with the band accompanying Kevin on some of his tunes. Some members went on to play with The Muffin Men -a Frank Zappa covers band which continued the Twiddly spirit of aural adventure and invention - sometimes with ex-Zappa member Jimmy Carl Black. The band reconvened in 2004 and have played a few select dates throughout 05/06.

A live mini album 'Live At The Zanzibar' was made available from Dec 2006, featuring two previously unavailable tracks and versions of old faves, in front of a ravenous audience. In 2007 the band released 'the upendium vol 3' the first in a series of demos, outtakes & curios. Their line-up is Carl Bowry (guitar & backing vocals) Andy Delamere (drums & backing vocals) Andy Frizell (vocals, bass guitar, alto sax, trombone) Simon James (vocals, tenor sax, flute) Martin Smith (trumpet, flugelhorn, strangehorn) and Keith Lancaster (vocals, narration, contraption operator and crayons 1989-1993) Read more on Last.fm.
