We couldn’t wait for this unique opportunity to film with LA’s Tweak Bird. The brothers Bird had just had their tour van broken into but were still on hand to perform this exclusive acoustic version of ‘The Future’ from their amazing self titled debut. The use of a blonde synthetic wig as stylophone adornment was also massively appreciated.
Tweak Bird is a brother duo consisting of Caleb and Ashton Bird. Produced under the helm of Deaf Nephews (Melvins’ Dale Crover and Altamont’s Toshi Kasai), the duo’s debut is a sweeping seven-song intro to a band exploring the depths of heavy experimental, progressive, and psych-infused rock. A sort of musical Armageddon that’s constantly on the horizon, looming. Tweak Bird has played shows with the Melvins, Ancestors, Earthless, and many others. Picked by the Melvins, they played at ATP’s The Nightmare Before X-Mas 2008 edition, curated by the Melvins and Mike Patton. Recently, they were on tour as openers for Tool during a 12-show, 3-week swing through Canada and the US.
