Curveballs - May 1st 2008 (with Retrofin)



Joining Nick in the studio tonight were local rocking fivesome Retrofin. The band released their debut album The Human Condition in March and are touring throughout the year, including a set at Astoria 2 on May 16th as well as gigs in Brixton and Clapham in June. No doubt they'll have plenty more rock'n'roll stories to tell then – alongside various ones we heard on the show, such as fights in Indian restaurants, Pete getting dressed as a smurf in Estonia and the various occasions band members have thrown themselves into casualty... and that's all before those obsessive fans have got anywhere near them. Head over to to find out more (you know you want to!) as well as how to get the LP.
