Live at Dog and Parrot, Newcastle

The Dog and Parrot in Newcastle was the scene for a LOUD triple header which would would be a kind of musical hair of the dog for anyone feeling a sense of Sunday night lull. And the loudest of the lot (so loud that the sound guy unwittingly introduced their set by saying “this is going to be too loud”, a pointer which was duly ignored) were on first. Year Of Birds are a four piece from Middlesbrough who play a bunch of punchy sub-one minute tunes without taking a breath in between.
