Curveballs 11th December 2019 (with The Vision, and Against the Grain’s Richie & Matt)

Click below to listen back to the show (Go to 22:33 for Against the Grain and 1:00:44 for The Vision):
First up tonight I was joined by Richie and Matt from new Essex metal outfit Against the Grain. 2020 kicks off for them on January 10th when they’ll be playing a special charity gig at Chinnery’s in Southend, in memory of Richie’s nephew Charlie who sadly passed away earlier this year. They’ll be joined on the night by Walk in Coma and headliners Heart of a Coward. Listen back to them chatting about what to expect from an Against the Grain gig, the recording of their debut release, and Richie’s superb taste in hats. Find them on Facebook and Instagram for more!
Next up was the return of Steven, Lee and Stanley from The Vision. Since they last joined us back in 2017, the pop-edge trio have been working on their second album, from which we heard a sample in the form of their hot-off-the-press new single Right Now, out early next year. We also got to hear stories of their matching hats, getting ID’d everywhere, random musical influences, plus we got to hear live versions of their current single Pocket Change – out now in support of homelessness charities – and their new Christmas song, which they have just released a video for on their website Check their site for more album and gig news soon!
