Twisted Angels 17 January 2008

Twisted Angels with MNH's Assistant Curator Nicola ToomsThree members of Manx all-girl band, Twisted Angels, dropped into the Manx Museum recently to hand over items of music memorabilia for the museum’s collections.

Andrea, Ami and Steph took time out from their busy schedules to drop off the guitar, cymbal and items of stage gear, all of which had been used by the band at various gigs on the Island and in the UK.

Formed by 4 school friends in 2002, the band played regularly on the Isle of Man. After 3 years of hard work their album Alter Ego was signed for worldwide distribution and they undertook 3 UK tours in 2005 and played at the TT festival in 2006. Their latest video features a cameo appearance by Sir Norman Wisdom.

Twisted AngelsManx National Heritage is concerned with recording and preserving all aspects of the Island’s heritage for future generations, including musical and cultural heritage.

Nicola Tooms, Assistant Curator at Manx National Heritage, said:Twisted Angels

“We were delighted when we heard that the band was willing to donate some items to us. Museums are not just about the past; part of our job is to collect items which illustrate or represent life on the Island today. One aspect of this is the very vibrant local music scene from which up to now, we have had relatively few objects.”

Its not certain if Cliff Richard is a musical influence on the band or not, but the three chirpy rock stars seemed happy enough to pose aboard the museum’s vintage horse tram in an homage to Cliff’s epic ‘Summer Holiday’!

The Manx Museum is part of the award-winning Story of Mann and is open Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 5pm.
