… 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 Chisel, Midnight Oil, Divinyls, Flowers, Rose 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.”
