Live at The Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle
The wonderful Star and Shadow cinema was the venue for Allo Darlin’s triumphant return to Newcastle, hot on the heels of this year’s universally acclaimed record Europe, the venue was bustling. First on the bill though were The Agency who, despite being from the freezing North East, have a laid back sound which wouldn’t be out of place on the sun drenched West Coast of America. And although their slightly off key vocal harmonies would give Brain Wilson nightmares, they do add a particular charm to the downbeat ditties and songs about werewolves. Fans of Galaxie 500 would be in capable hands.
