TWITCH - s/t 7" EP 33 rpm (1973, PoCo - Vancouver)
Formed in 1971, Canada’s long lost doom/proto-punk legends! Band-leader Ian prompted the guys to wear bloody horror make-up & bizarre outfits, a newspaper article dated January 18, 1973 mentions “the ear-splitting Twitch” playing regularly to capacity audiences. “...a brooding bad-trip sounding proto-punker that bridges the gap between Sixties garage and psych…” (RK / Terminal Boredom). Twitch’s legacy is the missing link for ‘70s proto-punk and proto-metal of the Pacific Northwest region.
Originally issued as two sleeveless promo 45s pressed in roughly 100 copies each, now reissued on one 14 minute EP with orange repro labels, deluxe pocket sleeve, and 16 page booklet with detailed history & tons of horror make-up photos! Ltd. 600 copies.
