Face To Face Recharged – Now Released

It’s 40 years since The Angels first released their album Face To Face – an unstoppable set of tracks which have made their way right around the world, straight up the charts and right into the very core of rock’n’rollers hearts – all while leaving a permanent imprint on Australia’s recent cultural history.

To this day, so strong is the affection for the songs on Face To Face that the band have taken the unprecedented steps to completely re-record the album in celebration of reaching its 40th Anniversary.

A Very Special Album

Face To Face – Recharged is unique! The first time ever an Australian rock record has been so permanently popular that a band can justify re-recording the entire album four decades after it’s initial release to the public.

iTunes – Spotify – Apple Music – Google Play

Rick Brewster says about the album – “Face To Face Recharged is so close to the original but after playing these songs live for 40 years some have naturally evolved, making for a few surprises… also Dave, Nick & Sam have, of course, added their uniqueness.”

Face To Face 40th Anniversary

This year The Angels celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their album ‘Face To Face’.

A hallmark moment in Australian rock music history, the album’s release in 1978 saw the band’s new songs blaring out of car radios and back yard parties across the nation as The Angels and their new found approach to rock’n’roll relentlessly drove its way into the psyche of a whole generation of Australian youth.

This introductory video sees guitarist brothers Rick & John Brewster ready to embark on a 12 part series of interviews with Punwin Productions’ Maurice Parker as these three plumb the depths of a different track in each episode.

New Episode Each Week

In recognition of this milestone The Angels will be embark this year on a string of dates for their upcoming Face To Face 40th Anniversary Tour commencing next Fri 11th May.


This unique video series has come to life thanks to the efforts of Maurice Parker & Carolyn Unwin from Punwin Productions. Maurice, who had many years ago produced the band’s ‘Eat City‘ film clip, became reacquainted with the band when he filmed The Angels live at the recent AACTA Awards. He subsequently filmed them playing the whole Face To Face album live at the Bridge Hotel.

Rick & John have really enjoyed being interviewed by Maurice for this series. His energy is that of a true enthusiast and the band would like to express their gratitude to Maurice & Carolyn and their production team for their keen interest and excellent work on these videos.

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.”
