Good thing you're absolutely wrong.

Is this really happening?

I don't know or care what this talk about twinkle things is, or why American Football should / shouldn't be associated with it - but this is great news. They play great music. And as much as "new" songs would be awesome, it's also great to find unreleased songs that were recorded during that era. This is me hoping for a vinyl.

nice to see revisionists out in force. bands like christie front drive had their music described as 'twinkly' in the 90s, so what's wrong with referring to american football as such, so long as it's accurate? just because it's now been co-opted as a "genre" (wtf?) does't mean that it's not a legitimate description of a certain type of guitar sound.

however, i would suggest that bands such as mineral / cfd had a twinkly guitar sound, and bands like american football do not.

thus, we are back where we started. what exactly is twinkly about playing noodly, slightly jazz influenced emo? not a lot.

They're are the biggest influence for the twinkle movement. I don't like the term as much as anyone and I love the music.

i hear ya and youre right theyre a big influence, but if you dont like the term, you dont have to use it...

Its weird .. their Lp is my favourite record of all time,, but I don't really like the EP that much. Hopefully these songs lean more towards the LP songs

Great news
