CB September 23rd 2009 (with Crazy Eights + FiftyFours)


The Crazy Eights (l-r): Sam (drums), James (bass), Sam (guitar/vocals), Ben (vocals).


Tonight I was joined in the studio by locals the Crazy Eights. Formed a year ago, the band have 
already recorded two EPs with a view to recording a third in the new year. Before that (and fresh 
from their headline set at the Camden Barfly), there are plenty of upcoming opportunities to catch 
their live show and all it entails (“A young and enthusiastic love child of Kasabian, Muse, Oasis, 
Rage Against The Machine, Stereophonics and BRMC” is the official line!) – head over to to find out more!

I also chatted to Matt from local newcomers the FiftyFours, ahead of their performance at the 
Hermit on Friday night. The band have released an EP, Secrets & Sketches, and will be touring 
Essex throughout October – visit for dates. They’ll also be 
joining me in the studio later in the year too!
