Stretching as far back as 1992, two high school students befriended each other in a common interest of music. Many years would pass as they went their seperate ways after high school, but their love of music kept them in contact with one another, getting together on rare occasions to talk about music and what they had been doing in their life. Matt (aka Sand Box) would go off to college while working at a marketing firm doing design work. Tom (Crack Head, aka DigiP) would skip college to work full time in the auto industry and eventually ended up working for one of the largest banks in New Jersey, as a computer operator.
In 1998, the two began working towards recording their music for others to listen to. Twisted Pair began to take shape. It was a project that gave them much satisfaction, with their insanely large hunger for music of all shapes, sizes and colors - their defining sound was about to be born. Inspired by dark industrial overtones and post modern tinges, Twisted Pair embarked on an ambitious effort to create a sound based in a touch of melody, heavy laden beats and grinding guitars, with industrial backing soundscapes. This lead way to the creation of Twisted Pair Records.
With the release of their 2nd record 'Old and the New...It's Inside You', they started this web site in order to host all and any info on their band Twisted Pair, along with information on existing collaborations and projects related to Twisted Pair and Twisted Pair Records. Since its inception it has taken on many forms, ranging from info about other independent bands, with album reviews and a radio page featuring all independent bands, it contained info on upcoming shows and news related to the band.
Twisted Pair Records has since slowed down to an almost grinding halt. Due to the ever expanding world of music and life in general, this site is now more or less for informational purposes only, and to document some of the music by Twisted Pair, which is freely downloadable on this site. It will forever be a way for fans to contact Twisted Pair and find info on any future endeavors, along with the personal pages for each of it's members of Twisted Pair. Feel free to download any of the songs from this site and share them with your friends! (You can also purchase our album with songs not available on our site directly by going to CdBaby.com)
Thanks to all our friends and fans.
Much love and respect,
