Dwight Twilley and Phil Seymour (who comprised the Dwight Twilley Band) are the missing link after the Beatles and ELO. However, even that is an unfair oversimplification. What makes their music all the more enticing is that they both seem to draw more upon the most sharp and jaded elements of the Plastic Ono band rather than the post-dream Beatles state that ELO pretty much remained within. For no other reason than complete mismanagement and unfortunate luck they remain mostly unknown despite one hitish single. While having their own unique voices I can’t help but file them under ‘this is where I wish John Lennon was in 1977.’ The criminally underrated/serendipitously sprung at Sun Records, Sincerely:
Dwight Twilley – Baby Let’s Cruise 
So coherent yet comes off the rails entirely at just the right point throughout.
Dwight Twilley – Sincerely 
They’re optimistic I swear… I was torn whether or not to put this track first. Fucking cunningly brilliant.
Dwight Twilley – I’m losing you 
Eat your heart out Jeff Lynne
