Tiltwheel

Profile:
Tiltwheel is an American punk rock band from San Diego, formed in 1991 by Damon Way (who would later go on to become the co-founder of DC Shoes), Bob MacPherson & Aaron Regan. Joined shortly afterwards by current frontman and guitarist Davey Quinn, Tiltwheel recorded their first demo with Damon on vocals. Following general dissatisfaction with the results and disharmony within the band, Damon was “sacked” and Davey took over vocal duties leading to the Tiltwheel sound still heard nearly two decades later.
The coming years saw many line up changes and personal tragedies including the death of bassist Jarrod Preston Adams in a car accident in 2002 which lead the band close to breaking up. With only Davey remaining a constant throughout the band’s recorded history, Tiltwheel have released a number of 7” singles and appeared on numerous compilation albums across many labels in the US and abroad. 1999 saw the release of the first “proper” Tiltwhel album Hair Brained Scheme Addicts which, while the ever self-critical Davey was unhappy with the production, was well received and became a minor punk classic amongst those in the know. The band are exceptionally passionate about their punk roots, with Davey having even been accused of deliberately sabotaging any potential popularity the band may have found (a claim he vehemently denies) by taking more than a decade to release a follow up album with 2010's The High Hate Us.
Characterised by Davey’s raw vocals, the band’s driving melodic hooks (drawing obvious comparison to Leatherface and Jawbreaker) and a fondness for excessive drinking and bleak introspection, Tiltwheel are a hugely popular band in the punk underground. Most of their material was, however, released in very limited quantities and has become increasingly hard to obtain in recent years. Several releases have subsequently been reissued by labels such as Razorcake Records and A.D.D. Records to meet continued demand.
Davey is currently an active member of the bands Too Many Daves, Bloodbath & Beyond and (along with existing Tiltwheel bassist J. Wang), Dan Padilla.
