Music, Magic And Biscuitheads

A week of tops shows in just one week across Teesside. Just on Tuesday at Mix Tape the audience was bombarded by the tempest and fury of Tyneside\'s Kobadelta. With a twitching singer, crooning a dark narrative to a roaring guitar over The Keys, Travolta dancefloor, it was a real cultural crossover on Linthorpe Road. Caught between the gears of the industrial grind, the twisted message ....
