Curveballs 27th September 2017 (with Carousel)

In the first of two shows this week, I was joined in the studio by Carousel (l-r Toby, Sarah, Chris, Tom). The quartet joined us in the middle of a busy few weeks – the previous week they’d played the launch gig in Southend for their debut EP which was released the following day, and they have many more gigs coming up in October (including ‘Camp Carousel’ on Oct 15th – details coming soon!).
