Twisted Rod hail from the capitel of the Czech Republic, Prague!
All three band members have been friends for many years since their school days.and always had a great interest in music.
Filip/ Phil as the frontman of Twisted Rod has been a Rock and Roll freak since his teenage days and together with Ondrej/Andy and Petr “Speedy” they formed Twisted Rod around 2009 when they also played their first gig in a Prague pub. The evidence by the way can be found on Youtube…
Initially they were a neo/ Stray Cats revival type of band however unlike other bands in the RnR genre, they constantly evolved and changed.
From 2011 onwards they got a chance to play alongside some top bands like the Bellfuries, Big Sandy or Jack Rabbit Slim as these bands were making their way via the Catmusic agency to the Czech Republic. This had a huge impact on the band and their music. By 2014 the band’s repertoire changed to a more authentic and wild Rock and Roll style.While playing at Firebirds festival three years ago they were swiftly signed by Rhythm Bomb Records and two years ago their first album ” Bring It On Home” became an acclaimed debut album by the band.
Their second and recent offering aptly titled ” Boozin’ and Boppin” is an absolute must hear for the serious RnR fan. Most of the songs are written by Phil himself and their covers like ” Rock and Roll Guitar” are never a copy and always very refreshing.
Twisted Rod have become a new secret tip on the aging RnR/Rockabilly scene touring extensively all the weekenders and festivals around Europe.
In the Czech Republic they are definately the Nr 1 Rock and Roll/ Rockabilly band playing true, unmixed, unfiltered rockin’ sounds.
They are young, they are wild and they love their beer! They are Twisted Rod….
