It’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.“
The Angels are an Australian rock band that formed in Adelaide, South Australia, in 1974. The band later relocated to Sydney and enjoyed huge local success, clocking up hit singles across four decades, including “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again”, “Take a Long Line”, “Marseilles”, “Shadow Boxer”, “No Secrets”, “We Gotta Get Out of This Place”, “Let the Night Roll On”, and “Dogs Are Talking”. The Angels were cited by Guns N’ Roses and a number of Seattle grunge bands, including Pearl Jam and Nirvana, as having influenced their music. In the international market, to avoid legal problems with the Casablanca Records’ act Angel, their records were released under the names Angel City and later The Angels from Angel City.
