‘Shadows & Fog’ SMH Review

The Tango Saloon ‘Shadows & Fog’ (Romero/Newmarket)

Review in The Sydney Morning Herald, 18th May 2012 by John Shand

The brilliant Deadwood aside, westerns have been sadly out of favour on our TV screens, but not on our sound systems. The latest round-up from The Tango Saloon blurs genres even further than before, with a distinct film-noir element now darkening the tumbleweeds and showdowns. Eeriness and sophisticated humour become as entangled as heatwaves and sand in a lonely desert. Julian Curwin can carve a third notch in his guitar for another victory over the evil forces of musical predictability. His scowling gang includes Marcello Maio (keyboards), Mark Harris (bass), Danny Heifetz (drums) and Jess Ciampa (percussion). They launch it tonight at the Factory Theatre with Romero stablemates Darth Vegas.
