CB October 13th 2010 - the show nobody saw coming, and was all the more fun for it

So there I was, sat in the studio, with my guest band for the night having had to pull out at the last minute. Then out of the blue, some familiar faces to Curveballs knocked at the window, saying hi as they were passing through town. Having told them about my predicament, one of them suddenly remembered they had a guitar in their car boot. Cue one collective bright idea…




…So tonight I was joined in the studio by Andy from 3rd Rock Revolution, Elv from last week’s guests The Filthy Vibe, and Tom who does a good job of simply being Tom, and together we knocked out the first ever mostly-live Curveballs Turbo feature. You can hear some of the results below.
