CB September 8th 2010 (with The Retrotones)


Tonight I was joined in the studio by Lewis (left, vocals/guitar) and Adam (vocals/bass) from locals The Retrotones. The band, which also features Benny on guitar and Dylan on drums, have been described as “like 60s and 70s rock blended with early Nirvana”, and currently have one album available entitled Biting Flies, with a second currently being recorded.


They have two gigs lined up for later this month, starting with the Busking For Cancer event at St James’ Park on September 18th from 10am, followed by their own Glastonfree event on the 24th–26th at Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Aveley Road, Upminster – as the name implies, entry is free at the weekend-long event and you might just spot a familiar face doing some DJing!
