01 Feb 2010 // An interview by Shade
What can we expect to see from The Twitch band over the next year?

A lot of kickass shows and more videos.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Practice and keep on writing.

What will your next release be?

A full album called 'Time For Change'. Due out 5th Feb!

How do you come up with your lyrics?

We write songs about what's going on in our lives. They are all real stories about real people.

Who would you most like to support live?

The Pixies.

How do you describe your music?

Dirty Rock'n'Roll.

What is the best part of being a musician?

Getting a immediate reaction from fans, having a lot of fun and travelling.

What is in your CD collection at home?

A mixture of Motley Crue, The Stooges, The Beatles, The Pixies, Neil Young, Tom Waits. The list goes on. Also Jesus owns every Led Zep LP on vinyl.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

What goes on tour, stays on tour.

What inspired you to become a start The Twitch?

Josh and Jesus started a band called The Tourettes with Eli from Turning Tricks. Eli who played bass and was the singer at the time, left to pursue other music projects. So we replaced him with Fleur Jack on vocals and Jess Rose on bass. Adding two hot females changed the whole dynamic of the band. This added new possibility's that expanded the horizon giving The Tourettes a new lease on life.

How did you come up with the name The Twitch?

We were still called The Tourettes when we found out there was a MC Tourettes. We went on a Sunday drive and came up with The Clap, The Dairy and The Twitch. We decided to change our name to The Twitch because when you go down on a lady she twitches, but only if you do it right!

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

On either www.myspace.com/thetwitchnz or www.facebook.com/thetwitchnz
