When Does The Mind-Bending Start? The Life and Times of World of Twist
by Gordon King
Nine Eight/Bonnier Books
I've loved World of Twist since they emerged from the Sheffield/Manchester vortex around 1990. One great album, a few singles, a couple of radio sessions, a very psychedelic appearance on The Word and gone within 12 months. Some members ended up in Earl Brutus and, latterly, Quatermass 3, some just disappeared, and two are sadly no longer with us.
DJ Fuzzyfelt is a part time intinerant farm worker, sharing their time between Portugal and Wales where there is a lot of farm work... Lover of music, megaliths, and magick.
March sees a greatly expanded reissue of Elliott Smith's most critically acclaimed album Either/Or
Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
