After their first song, "No Coast", the very young band experienced problem with their amp, forcing them to stop to get it fixed. After a few minutes, they continued their set.
Singer/guitarist Max Timander ends all of his sentences with the word "cool" and would often thrash around on stage. During their last song, "Sick", Timander landed into the audience area and played/squirmed on the dance floor... all that in thirty minutes.
As you can see from their setlist, which was written on a receipt for cheese curds, they played most of their No Coast debut album... but throwing in a new song called "Fright Night".
The so-called "dirty doo-wop" band played about 30 minutes of material from their self-titled debut album (Autumn Tone Records), including their set finale "Smoke Rings".
I've said that I've had problems with the name Twin Peaks, as it is confusing with the David Lynch weird television show. The two have nothing to do with each other, and, in fact, the band had no idea it was a show. I have been told that Lynch is a fan of the Chicago band's music, so it is probably less likely that the band will be sued.
You can tell right away when the band took the 7th Street Entry stage that they don't take themselves too seriously by the way they talk and play their instruments. Their music is more like garage/surf, sounds like if they had three Ty Segall playing lead guitars. Vocals were traded by the three guitarists Cadien, Clay, and Jack. They also had a drummer called Connor and an unnamed keyboardist/guitarist.
The band played most of their hit songs/singles, including "Making Breakfast", "Flavor", "Good Lovin'" and "I Found a New Way".
With a 99% underage audience (everyone had "X" written on their hands), the high-energy songs got them to mosh in the center of the floor... which at this point, I had to get out of there. I'm just too old for this, way too old for The Wombats as well.
Twin Peaks' Wild Onion is out now on Grand Jury. They band continues their tour to a sold out show at Total Drag in Sioux Falls, South Dakota tonight (May 20th).
