Tongue Tied Twin is a far travelled outlaw one man band
who plays dirty blues and wild
garage rock'n'roll with loads of
infectious positive energy.
Famous for distorted bottleneck
slide guitar riffs played on
handmade guitars, accompanied by
stomping kickdrum, battered hi-hat
and distorted vocals along with some
wailing blues harp, Tongue Tied
Twin will blow your mind.
This one man alone is delivering the
power and noisy presence of a full
band, and he's doing so with a big
smile on his face.
Tongue Tied Twin
built many of his instruments
himself, such as cigar box guitars,
canjos, an electrified suitcase
kickdrum, a primitive loop-station
megaphone among other things.
Tongue Tied Twin is part of a
very lively international one man
On his travels he shared the stage
with many other great one man and
one woman bands, such as Sheriff
Perkins, Thee Mysterious Asthmatic
Avenger, Chicken Diamond, Reverend
Beat-Man, King Automatic, Urban
Junior, Becky Lee and Drunk Foot,
One Man Destruction Show, Chuck
Violence, Sacha Love, Cello Inferno,
Slim Wild Boar, Extreme Blues Dog,
Molly Gene One Whoaman Band,
Sedlmeir, Harp Explosion, Giancane,
Slimguib's and others.
Tongue Tied Twin performed in
Switzerland, Germany, Austria,
France, Belgium, Netherlands,
England, Wales, Scotland, Serbia,
Croatia, Portugal and Italy.
Occasionally Tongue Tied Twin
can also be found busking on the
streets of Europe, kicking his
suitcase and sliding on is

Tongue Tied Twin. "Ce monstre
d'énergie positive arrose son public
d'un blues fulgurant. Impossible de
rester sans bouger devant les
rythmiques entraînantes. Harmonica,
guitare saturée et batterie, c'est
l'arsenal du démon."
