Twist (1979)

Peter Marsh's Post Punk / New Wave Band


After the break up of Easy Street, Peter Marsh experimented with a Punk / New Wave sound with Twist. Twist band members included Stevie Corduner, formerly of Byzantium (Drums), Wims (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Andy Pask (bass), with Peter Marsh on lead vocals and playing acoustic guitarist.

The Twist album 'This is Your Life' was released on Polydor in 1979, with the title track released as a single. The album featured Steve Nieve on keyboards and Jimmy Edwards and Elvis Costello on backing vocals. It was recorded at Amp Pro, a studio in Shepherds Bush owned by Nick Lowe, which had been converted by Tony Visconti. The album included a New Wave interpretation of the classic "The House of the Rising Sun".

Proceeds from sales of this beautiful song about coming to terms with a bereavement will be donated to St Christopher’s Hospice.

The single was released on 1 December 2016 and is available for download from music download sites and streaming services. Fly Away is the first single from Peter Marsh's forthcoming album 'Back To The Beginning' (which will be released in early 2017). ‘Back to the Beginning’, includes a number of tracks inspired by the loss of Peter Marsh's partner, Laurence, three years ago. Laurence was cared for by St Christopher’s Hospice at the end of her life and Peter is donating the profits from sales of ’Fly Away’, a single from the album, to St Christopher’s, in her memory. Although it was inspired by his personal loss, Peter believes and hopes that ‘Fly Away’ will be meaningful and inspirational to anyone suffering from the loss of a loved one - those memories which can be especially difficult to deal with at Christmas time.  We’re sure you’ll agree that it’s a beautiful song and we encourage you to download the track from one of the following links: Remember you’ll be benefiting St Christopher’s with every purchase!
