JOHN BREWSTER kicked off what eventually became The Angels four decades ago, in Adelaide 1970, when he asked his brother Rick if he wanted to play with him in a band. The Moonshine Jug & String Band was born.mDoc Neeson joined the jug band a year later and Moonshine became one of Adelaide’s most successful bands, selling out residencies week after week and playing big festivals and concerts. John wrote a song in 1973 called ‘Keep you on the Move’ which peaked at number 4 on the Adelaide radio charts. It was a rock song recorded by a jug band. John, Rick and Doc realised that they had to change direction and so the band evolved into The Keystone Angels in 1974. An appearance at the 1975 Sunbury Pop Festival resulted in touring Australia with Chuck Berry and, later that year, with AC/DC who liked the band so much they introduced them to Harry Vanda and George Young in Sydney. The Angels then signed to Alberts and went on to huge success, both in Australia and, in the 80s, in the US, Canada, England and Europe. John left The Angels in February of 1986 and joined the Party Boys with Status Quo Bassist, Alan Lancaster, until mid 1989 when John and Alan formed The Bombers, and signed a major worldwide record contract with A&M in Los Angeles. They wrote, produced and recorded the album ‘Aim High’. As rhythm guitarist and key songwriter for The Angels, John Brewster was instrumental in developing The Angels guitar-driven sound and brought Angels classics like I Ain’t the One, After the Rain, Marseilles and Shadowboxer to the band. Although he learned to play guitar listening to Bob Dylan, it was the Australian hard rock and UK punk rock explosions of the mid-1970s that inspired John Brewster to crank up the speed and volume of The Angels for their massively successful albums Face To Face and No Exit.
