Squeeze at the Albany 1977

A review by Paul Rambali from the NME (6 August 1977) of a gig by Squeeze at the Albany in Deptford:

'The Albany is one of those places – and there aren't many – that can get packed to the rafters, sweaty and messy, and still be comfortable. It's a small theatre at weekends and an occasional small rock gig during the week, putting on mostly local bands. Squeeze are obviously a local band, local heroes even... when they came on stage they were greeted with a welcoming roar – probably most of the crowd were their mates anyway. There's no way you can really blow a gig like that, and of course they didn't' (read the rest of the review at Rock's Back Pages).

This was the old Albany at 47 Creek Road, before the current building opened in Douglas Way.
