Hotly-tipped when they emerged in the midst of the post-White Stripes garage rock revival boom, the four-piece released a handful of singles and a self-titled album in 2004, before calling it a day in early 2006. At the time, frontman Martin Trimble put out an unusually candid statement claiming the 22-20s had been unable to move beyond the wearing "their influences on their sleeve" stage and stating that he was "no longer comfortable being in a band named after a blues song."
It seems he's had a change of heart because the band are back, minus one member (keyboardist Charley Coombes -- brother of Supergrass's Gaz and Rob -- having been replaced by second guitarist Dan Hare), but with Skip James-referencing moniker intact.
Two new tracks have been posted on the 22-20s' MySpace ('Latest Heartbreak' and a live tune called 'Ocean') and the boys -- Trimble and Hart plus original members Glen Bartup and James Irving -- will apparently finally release their second album some time this year.
