Dwight Twilley Band: Live From Agora (Gigatone)

Dave Laing (Australia), Ugly Things, 2010

Both band's filtered their Anglophile sensibilities through Southern roots (Twilley & partner Phil Seymour were from Tulsa and cut early demos with former Sun rockabilly man Ray Harris), and the debut albums by each band – #1 Record and Sincerely – respectively each suggested artists whose craft was seemingly developed in the studio rather than on stage.
