Roxy Music: City Hall, Newcastle

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 18 November 1972

IT'S DEFINITELY a chic wasteland at the Newcastle City Hall. There wasn't even a platform boot in sight when I went down there to see Roxy Music. The males look like vile scruffy hippies with long matted hair and boring old denims while the girls weren't much better. I mean, there was one fellow in the hall sporting a vague approximation of a Rod Stewart rooster cut but he was wearing sandals. Sandals?
