This year The Angels celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their album ‘Face To Face’ by touring to play the record live from start to finish along with a whole slew of their other chart topping singles.
In the final series episode number 12 John & Rick reflect on the hugely famous track ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again‘ – the song which spawned Australia’s most renowned audience response chant of ‘No Way, Get F*&cked, F*&k Off‘ .
This is a very early Angels single which was Doc’s own song, the first ever recorded with Harry Vanda & George Young from Albert’s music. It’s a classic example of a single which can initially fail completely on radio yet, over the years, become an indelible piece of music history.
Much myth surrounds the origins of the famous audience response chant for this song and to this day the subject is shrouded in dispute. All that aside, it’s interesting to note that the chant has made it’s way around the world with the band even hearing it from the crowd as far back as the late 80’s at an enormous outdoor concert in Mississippi in the USA.
