Sorry, as a kid in my teens and early twenties I just loved there music.
There we’re no political statements, just great music and great live shows.
Just tried to bring attention to a movie, documentary which many may not be aware off but as fans many May enjoy watching.
Sorry for bringing it up, but if one Angels fan from the past reads my post and sees the movie it will have been worthwhile.
I'm a huge fan. I've still got most of their vinyl LPs stored somewhere. Most of my "live" experience with the Angels was at our beloved Leagues club. Once at the Station St building and then 3 or 4 times at the "new" place. I can also recall seeing them early on at an outdoor 2SM concert (Moore Park, I think), with acts such as Sports and Split Enz.
As a budding guitarist, I was always front ,centre, taking in as much as I could of the band dynamic, and trying to get a reaction or facial expression out of Brewster (the serious one).
I didn't know that Doc lived in Faulco, but years later I took a few lessons from Bob Spencer up at Wenty Falls, I think it was.
@jane the pain
- I think that the "call and response" in that song evolved in Western Sydney. The first time I heard the crowd do it the band seemed quite bemused, but over the years went on to embrace being told to "Get F...ed, F... off.
Thanks for the post, I will look out for the Doco.
And the poster above bagging Midnight Oil obviously wasn't at Penny Park in '83.
