The Angels - Face To Face - 40th Anniversary Tour - 2018

… more to the story.

It was 1978, our Face The Face album was released and could be heard  in backyards all over the country,” says Rick Brewster…. “The era of ‘pub rock’ had begun. Bands like Cold ChiselMidnight OilDivinylsFlowersRose Tattoo,
Mi‐Sex, we were all playing venues around the country filled to overflowing, seven nights a week
“.

The Angels got the approval from the people that mattered most, the fans who jammed into the sweaty pubs to see them play, something that hasn’t wavered in the four and a half decades since the band’s inception.

The audiences were part of the process, because in almost all cases, we wrote the songs and played them onstage,” recalls John Brewster… “Everything we did was in front of people. It wasn’t hard to see what was going over well.”

The Angels - Face To Face Anniversary Preview Show

Vale Malcolm Young

November 20th, 2017

Malcolm Young - AC/DC

John, Rick and all of The Angels wish to express our deepest sorrow at the death of Malcolm Young.

Mal was a friend from way back in 1975 when we met him and the guys from AC/DC in Pt Pirie SA. He played a massive part in our career by introducing us to his brother George and Harry Vanda in that same year, resulting in our contract with Alberts. John and Rick have great memories of the gigs we did together, trading guitar riffs in hotel rooms, barbecues at George’s house jamming in his music room, and being present at a number of AC/DC recording sessions as they were at ours. Also we toured the country with AC/DC in February 1981, the Back in Black tour. Mal was a great guy, a gentleman who could be hard as nails in his determination for the band to succeed on the world stage.

John: “Mal was the best rhythm guitarist, solid as a rock, and a huge influence on my own playing”.

Our condolences to Angus, Fifa, Harry and his family. RIP Malcolm Young.

Face To Face – Anniversary Tour – Preview Show

November 15th, 2017

The Angels - Face To Face Anniversary Preview ShowIt’s hard to believe but in 2018 it will be the 40th Anniversary of The Angels highly influential album “Face To Face“, a record which firmly put the band on the rock’n’roll map.

The album spawned tracks that still hold pride of place in the Australian psyche including “Take A Long Line”, “After The Rain” and “Be With You“.

John Brewster says the album was named “Face To Face” because in the hey-day of Australian rock the band and the audience were so close to each other that the gigs were a kind of happy up-close confrontation.

It’s for this reason that The Angels have chosen Sydney’s Bridge Hotel on Friday December 8th for this special preview show. John says “This hotel is one of the last bastions of real pub rock with its sticky carpets and close quarters. The venue is a way to enjoy the music as it was originally delivered.

George Young – RIP

October 23rd, 2017

George Young - RIP

 

The Angels are distressed to hear of the passing of George Young who, together with Harry Vanda, played such a massive and pivotal role in helping us develop and define our sound.

John Brewster, in his facebook post, says… “George was the most inspirational person I’ve ever worked with and a real gentleman. I doubt that The Angels could have done it without his guidance and influence. Alberts was a true family. We’re blessed to have been a part of it and to have known him.” Rick Brewster adds… “George brought out the best in everyone he worked with.

– RIP George Young –

Brand New 36 Track Album

It’s Jug Band To Rock Music To Orchestral Symphony

The Angels - Brothers, Angels & Demons 36 Track Album
The ‘Brothers, Angels & Demons‘ album is the penultimate audio journey through a successful music career which begins pre-rock band and travels right through to The Angels playing their hits alongside the Adelaide Art Orchestra.

Starting out in Adelaide as the Moonshine Jug And String Band, the Brewsters and Doc Neeson first came together during this period in the early 70’s. After changing to electric instruments, being discovered by AC/DC producers Vanda & Young and then creating their own unique riffs, vocal styles and manic performance skills the group became a force of their own.

From here The Angels grew to be the band who would draw Australia’s largest crowds into the sweaty beer barns that were the playground of all those who flocked to the new sensation known as Pub Rock.

No other album has ever given this much insight into the huge metamorphosis seen by Australia’s most enduring rock band.
