In 1998, Graham Massey (808 State) wanted to create a night out he himself might leave his instruments at home for, and invented the Toolshed night in Manchester. In the time since, Toolshed has been hailed as one of the most expansive and ambitious attempts to leave the planet.

Each month The Toolshed Allstars perform a freeform set with equally unhinged guest musicians. Initially it was just Graham alone on computer, guitars and wind instruments. He was quickly joined in subsequent months by like-minded Manchester luminaries such as Paddy Steer (Homelife) Dick Harrison (Spaceheads) Graham Clark (jazz violinist extraordinaire) James Ford (Simian) and the unique multi-octave voice of Seaming To.

A storming 4 drummer, 6-piece horn section line-up of Toolshed forms the cornerstone of the debut album on Twisted Nerve - together with studio recordings and home sketches.
