Curveballs - July 24th 2008 (with Retro Crooks)

The Retro Crooks joined me in the studio tonight (l-r John, Tom, Leedsy, Gary). Based in Enfield, the foursome originally formed in school and release their debut single, Conrad Dangerfield, on July 28th on CD and download. The band’s next gig is at the Water Rats in London on August 2nd, with more tour dates planned for the rest of the year. You can find out more at

We also heard from local metallers Carnal Rites’ frontman Simon, on the eve of  the band performing at the Rock Off festival in Islington. Visit
