Artist Info


Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™There is more than one artist with this name:

1) RETRIEVER are the dark underbelly of the Newcastle music scene. They are a frenzy of thick fuzz-bass, jagged reverb laden guitar, cutting drum-machine beats and screeching feedback topped with a slice of bitter female vocal. It's a formula that since playing their first ever gig in July 2009 has seen them gain acclaim with support slots for The Slits, These New Puritans, Dum Dum Girls, and Hatcham Social among others as well as playing the Evolution, Middlesbrough Music Live and Tramlines Festivals.

"Spine-freezing vocals wander restlessly over a wall of fuzzed-up distortion" - MiddlesbroughMusicLive.co.uk

"One of Newcastle’s finest bands… a chrome wall of pure rock n roll essence" – NARC Magazine

"A white-hot salvo… exceptional" – Rob Nichols, Evening Gazette

"An already dark and brooding sound, the band create something incredibly believable...Retriever stand out simply because they’re pure, angry and very uncompromising" - Crack In The Road

"This is more like it!...And yes it is worth the hype" - BadRobot.co.uk



2) Retriever is a hardcore band from New South Wales.

They have released a demo, available on their MySpace.


3) Retriever was a West Coast 90s indie rock band that played highly spirited, sometimes delicate, rarely weepy pop songs by Kevin Castillo and his quartet. Tons of loud distorted guitar and punchy drum kit piloting make this slab of vinyl special to everyone who hears it. Their discography includes:
-"Three Second Hero" 10 inch (Silver Girl Records)
-split 7 inch w/ Rock Band #47
-"Greatest Moments of Doubt" cd (Anisette Records)
