CB July 21st 2010 - the return of The FiftyFours

Covered Drive, then did an extra hour here. 7 hours on air in a day. Is this a record?



Joining me tonight were Barney (left, drums) and Matt (vocals/guitar) from the FiftyFours, making their second appearance in the Phoenix FM studio. Since their first back in December, the band (also featuring Daniel on guitar and Jake on bass) have been writing new material and gigging regularly. They can next be seen performing at The Workshop in Old Street (EC London) on August 6th, and will be returning to Brentwood’s The Hermit on September 17th. For the full list, and to hear more from the band, visit
