CB September 22nd 2010 (with The Polar Bear Blackout Fever)

The Polar Bear Blackout Fever (l-r): Roger (bass), Reece (drums), Steve (guitar/vocals).


Joining me tonight were The Polar Bear Blackout Fever, appearing just ahead of their latest gig at Billericay’s The Belvedere on Friday. The trio, perhaps best known for featuring former The Use Of Nothing frontman Steve and bassist Roger, have established themselves locally with their ear-catching mix of rock, psychadelia, jazz and plenty more in between. Originally formed last year, they have released an EP, Icarus… It Was Your Father With His Gun, which can be downloaded for free from their website, which is also the place to stay tuned for upcoming shows – catch them if you can!
