About this website

Welcome to the very long overdue reworking of the In Search of TwentyfourGone web site.

This site began in 1998 with the intent of compiling any and all information about the previously out-of-print CD from Twentyfour Gone titled, The Spin.

Information was very limited at the time but with the efforts of a handful of like-minded people, two copies of the elusive original CD were tracked down. MP3 versions of each track were quickly posted, allowing anyone who wanted to freely download the entire disc.

Then in 2003, the CD was reissued and the site was reworked with news of the reissue, media photos and music not included on the new CD. Copies of the reissue are now a bit hard to find, but this being the age of digital downloads, the disc can easily be purchased directly from the record label's website. First Time Records

Along with this new redesign, I am also making available for the first time, a very rare, unreleased track given to me by guitarist Zeljko Karlica just prior to the reissue of the CD. I figure I've kept this track to myself long enough and that everyone should have an opportunity to hear it.

CD review of The Spin by MacKenzie Wilson

The Canadian dream pop band Twentyfour Gone only released this one album and unfortunately disappeared after the release of The Spin in 1990, thankfully defining the band's heavy and embryonic soundscapes sparsely found among modern radio.

Their biggest hit was "Trust," a flawless rock melody full of thunderous drums and rolling bass circling Brian McCarrick's heart-wrenching vocals. This individual love song and "Girl of Colours" showcased Twentyfour Gone's rich songwriting craft, suiting a cathartic ring similar to the sounds of Kitchens of Distinction, Moev, and the Chameleons UK. It was appropriate during the early-'90s heyday of Madchester bands (Stone Roses, James, Chapterhouse) because it introduced another wave among the tagged alternative scene.

The Spin was too sonically gorgeous, especially with the guitar railing cuts such as "Sea and the Ocean" and the throttling drama of "In and Out of Nowhere." It's far too echoing of what was laid down during the '90s, particularly what came from bands such as INXS, Tears for Fears, and Echo and the Bunnymen. Again, it is really too bad this band made one album because their distinct sound was too enjoyable and perfect to dissolve after a brief musical stint.
