WATCH IT BURN/TILTWHEEL: Twice the Dose: CD

Writing for Razorcake, I knew it was only a matter of time before Todd sent some Tiltwheel my way. Watch it Burn is all right, but these three Tiltwheel songs are makin’ me want more and more! Think Jawbreaker or the Dillinger Four. Lyrics like, “I’m finding solace in broken things like windshields, bottles, hopes and dreams,” with great mid-tempo punk rock. Plus, in Todd’s interview with Tiltwheel (available on the Razorcake web-page!) lead singer Davey says great things like, “OK. You go into a bar and you just want to get mangled. I do this. I always tell the bartender straight off, ‘Here’s the deal. I’m fucking depressed. I’m pissed off. Something’s going to break.’” Or “I like a lot of country music and I don’t really see a difference between country music, blues, and punk rock. I think punk rock is blues. It’s the natural progression from blues, from sitting on a porch, trouble on your mind and you’re a long ways away from home, that’s what blues is all about. To me, that’s punk rock. So, that’s country music, too.” My thoughts exactly! So, if you haven’t already heard Tiltwheel, maybe this isn’t the best place to start, but start somewhere! If this were a cereal, it’d be just one bite of Fruit Loops! I want more!
