THE SECRET IS OUT – THE ANGELS RETURN TO THE DARKROOM
It’s time for the 40thanniversary of Darkroom, the classic Angels album featuring ‘No Secrets’, ‘Face The Day’ and ‘Poor Baby’.
The band will play the Darkroom album in its entirety, followed by a set of Angels classics and some rarities.
Darkroom became the band’s highest-charting album in the US (where they were known as Angel City), entering the Billboard charts at the end of 1980. The album also hit number five in Australia.
“The band is re-energised to the extent that I feel like it’s a young band again,” Rick says. “I feel like I felt when we started out.”
Growing up in Newcastle, Dave Gleeson – who later formed The Screaming Jets – loved The Angels. “Their songs from the late ’70s and early ’80s are more ingrained in me than even Jets songs, because they’ve been with me since I was 12 or 13 years old.”
Four decades on, it’s time to shine a light on an album that’s occasionally overlooked but remains an Aussie rock classic.
Take a calculated thrill … staring voices, from the dark room
