About

Inspired by the spirit of the Star And Shadow Cinema, we first started organising and promoting shows in 2006 for friends and local musicians in the North East and then eventually for national and international turns the following year. AGOP is a one man plan, with help from friends and movers ‘n’ shakers along the way.

Here’s a lil’ interview we did w/ Kit Records
