The Beginning Of The Twist // NUL

OK, so this is the most conventional ’Heads song yet – there are no asymmetric turns and only a hint of the lobotomised barbershop quartet that we’ve come to know and love. However, ‘The Beginning Of The Twist’ is the type of roaring and utterly loveable comeback we’ve been waiting for after the damp angular squib that was ‘News And Tributes’. A chorus that comes screeching out of the belfry and a verse that dances with its bobby socks still on, ‘The Beginning…’ breathes a stadium-sized sonic sheen into the band. Great, but can Barry stop wearing the bow tie now?
