Official Biography Infosheet - 1999
Since TWO TIMERS formed their unique two-piece band in 1993 they have surprised many thousands across Europe with the sheer power of their performance. Their formidable reputation and unclassifiable style has earned them guest spots with artists as diverse as the Corrs, John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Maceo Parker, Joe Satriani and the Stranglers as well as billing on major European festivals. Now back in the U.K. they are turning heads here fast…
Take two multi-instrumentalists with attitude, the mesmerising Sarah James and the taciturn Gordon Russell; throw in an electrified suitcase, a strap-on snare, some raw harmonica and feisty vocals; steamroller the lot with some rock-solid rhythm guitar and what have you got - one helluva show for a start. And then there's the songs: soak up thirty years-worth of Leadbelly, Alex Harvey, Tom Waits, T. Rex, Steve Earle, Zeppelin (I could go on), mix it with a strong dose of your own psyche and you have something which owes them all a lot but sounds nothing like any of them. It's an original and highly visual performance that deserves a slot on any billing.
And so to their new album, "Aubrey Rex and Other Stories", is a veritable lucky bag of quirky vignettes. Dip into the sleazy "Dirty White", a Dylanesque ballad of dead-end relationships. Dig in deeper to the raw energy of "Good Glasses". Grin at "Everybody Else", an ode to oddballs everywhere. Pause for thought at "Aubrey Rex" a dramatic portrait of a war hero. It's a journey of mixed emotions and believe me, you've never been anywhere quite like this before.
So if you appreciate dynamic performers with a strong sense of identity, get along to see Two Timers' show and you'll know exactly where they're coming from.
Oh, and prepare to be seriously entertained…
