Welcome To The Band Darren!!!
Thursday, February 26th, 2009
Guess who? Oh ya, Darren Vlassoff, that's who! Well as you've read in the headline, Darren Vlassoff is officially
the drummer and the final member of the Wanko Twist lineup. Just recently, Vlassoff agreed to be in the band, and when Curtis
J. McKenzie (rhythm guitar and backing vocals) got the yes to the invitation of Vlassof wanting to be in the band, he immedeitly
planned a ride for Vlassoff and his drumkit to be sent up to The Wanko Pub to get some long awaited practice in and the resaults
of the short three hour practice were amazing as Vlassoff learned a quarter of Wanko Twist' songs and perfected them. "Fame
is just around the corner" commented Curtis J. McKenzie and right he probably is.
February's a Little Different, As For The Band...?
Monday, February 23rd, 2009
A new album? Yeah right! No not a new album but a new name for the first unreleased and upcoming Wanko Twist
album. Well what's the name? Simple, just Wanko Twist. After a short discussion about the album between the band, the three
decided to scrap "Battle Royale" after rhythm guitarist and background vocalist Curtis J. McKenzie figuered out that a battle
royale is a fight between two chinese rivals. Therefor they just agreed to go with a simple self titled album. The band has
also added a newly written 2009 track titled "Teenage Wannabees", and a Ramones Cover "I Wanna Be Sedated". Curtis J.
McKenzie has also re-written "That Cold Winter Breeze" from an instrumental, to another acoustic song with lyrics and a written
guitar solo. The entire song is performed by Curtis J. McKenzie and will only be a studio mix (therefor won't be played during
W.T.H. What happened With The Band?
Wendsday, January 28th, 2009
Whats going on with Wanko Twist lately? Well as for the drummer situation, not very good. The band still
can't choose between Darren Vlassoff, and Spencer Spears. They're still in that tough situation, but a side from that, recording
and practice has also come to a halt. The band hopes to get back on its feet soon and get back in touch with band manager
DJ Horton for an upcoming gig and possible recording session. Curtis J. McKenzie (rhythm guitar and background vocals)
and Travis A. McKenzie (Lead guitar and Lead Vocals) have made quite a few improvements on songs such as: Loverbeam, Manganese
(The Bleeding), and Twist (Yell, Scream, & Shout). New guitar solos, newer rhthyms and a much stronger and more powerful
voice performance by both Curtis J. McKenzie and Travis A. McKenzie. The new improvements should be a hit and when they
finaly get recorded, they should be a success.

The Temperary Return For Vlassoff
Thursday, December 4th,2008
Well if you read the headline correctly, former Wanko Twist Drummer Darren Vlassoff will be returning for
one show at Sir James Dunn's Christmas Holiday Celebration to perform a few songs with the band. Vlassoff is considering
rejoining the band and starting a new contract under a few conditions. The reason Vlassoff was fired in the first place was
due to the fact that he wasn't obeing the contract what so ever and due to the fact that he could never have time for recording
sessions or practises. DJ Horton (Band Manager/Producer) and Curtis J. McKenzie (Rythm Guitar/ Background Vocals)
have been recently looking into Spencer Spears to replace Vlassoff. No desisions have been made yet and so far the
band is still trying to get a new drummer permanently by the end of 2008.
