No Ordinary Maybe
Corkskrew come from the Mediterrenian island of Malta making music that is a powerful mixture of rock and alternative styles. The band's songs deal with snapshots of everyday life: love, loss of loved ones, insecurity, change... In November 2004, the band released the second CD album entitled 'No Ordinary Maybe'. The album marks the band's departure from the electronic pop-rock feel of the previous release ('Micromania', 2002), with a focus on a back-to-basics approach to song-writing, playing and production. Over the past years, Corkskrew acted as supporting bands for established international acts like Sir Elton John, Faithless and Kosheen. Feeding their appetite for a larger audience, Corkskrew have recently broadened their horizons and succesfully managed to secure airtime in over 100 US college radio stations. They followed this up with speciality mix spins on commercial radio stations across America. Corkskrew was the first Maltese band to have it's tracks available for download on iTunes. In April 2004 Corkskrew visited Austria for a 7-date promo tour that saw the band perform alongside other Austrian bands and also recording a mini live set for FM4, one of Austria's leading alternative radio stations. In Setember 2004, Corkskrew followed up their Austrian experience with a live performance at the FIAP Jean Monnet in Paris, France. Corkskrew are Diane Micallef on vocals, Lincoln Spiteri on guitars and synth programming, Cliff Smith on bass, and Franco Aloisio on drums.
