about

With its eye boggling red and green sleeve, this unclassifiable and startling debut from Liverpool treasures, The Wizards Of Twiddly, received major local and national airplay on its 1992 release (including a memorable Mark Radcliffe session).

Voted Facelift' Magazine's 'The Canterbury Scene & Beyond' album of the year.

'...Wizards of Twiddly are men with extremely large pigeon holes - George Formby, Neil Innes, salacious, sharpened intellect, benign satire and accessible obscurantia...Comparisons? Start a fresh page. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It's a democratic anarchy of everything good you ever slapped your knees to!' - Ptolemaic Terrascope


Bonus material - full CD artwork (including lyrics) and a band portrait of the band in 1991 by Bernie Harper.
