Twisted Wheel showcase new songs at sold-out FAC251 gig Twisted Wheel Tickets
Oldham trio play 'Turnaround' and 'Killing Boy' at the Manchester venue
Performing at FAC251: The Factory, the Oldham trio aired the new tracks 'Turnaround' and 'Killing Boy' as part of an energetic 16-song set.
Also playing fan favourites 'Racket', 'Bad Candy' and 'You Stole The Sun', the band’s frenetic set was punctuated with the crowd chanting "Wheel, Wheel" throughout the gig.
After the show, frontman Johnny Brown told NME.COM about the significance of playing the newly opened venue.
"It was a great set, everyone was really up for it," he explained. "It's always great to play in Manchester in front of a home crowd, you can't beat it, but playing at FAC251 is special when you look at some of the acts, like Joy Division and Happy Mondays, that Factory [Records] had."
He added: "Those bands have had a lot of influence on me and I feel like I've got their vibe in me now and I'm carrying it on."
Earlier in the night support came from Stockton-on-Tees' Young Rebel Set.
