CB February 4th 2009 (with Aristocrats)


Aristocrats (l-r): Danny (guitar), Jonny (bass), Neil (lead guitar), James (drums), Tommy (vocals).


A couple of new names put in appearances on this week’s show, starting with locals Aristocrats. The band originally formed at the end of 2007 and their distinctive sound has influences ranging from the sixties all the way up to the present day. The band are releasing a new EP later this year and can regularly be seen gigging around Essex and London – head over to to find out where you can see them!
