CB May 12th 2010 - the return of Bob Collum

A huge thank you to everyone who played / came along to the latest Curveballs gig at Edge in Romford last Sunday – click here for photos and videos from the night!




This week I was joined once again by Bob Collum, just before his appearance at SX Festival over the weekend. Since the release of their last EP Twisted Lines & Mixed-up Rhymes, Bob and his Welfare Mothers have been busy working on new material, which should hopefully see the light of day by late summer. In the meantime, there’s plenty of opportunities to catch the band live locally, including the Essex Arms in Brentwood on May 27th (alongside the New Giants), and The Ship in Leigh-on-sea on June 4th (as part of the Pink Flamingo Club night).
