Krystal Vayne (l-r): Muz (vocals/guitar), Chris (bass), Joe (guitar), Shaun (drums).


Tonight I was joined in the studio by locals Krystal Vayne. Fresh from impressing at our first Edge gig last month, the foursome look set to be a name to watch on the local scene in 2010.

Good Child

Concrete Feelings

Lost in Austin

I also chatted to Bob Collum ahead of his gig at New Lodge, Billericay the following night. Bob has just released Twisted Lines & Mixed Up Rhymes, from which we heard the track She Hates Me, one of the tracks he performed in the studio back in July. Bob will be back on the show in the new year, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to catch him live around then – for a full list of dates, head to
