Original Angels Keep On Rocking

Who: The Angels
Where: Cardiff Panthers
When: Saturday April 9, 2005

IN 1975 an Adelaide band called The Keystone Angels supported AC/DC during a South Australian tour.

The band featured brothers John and Rick Brewster on guitar, Doc Neeson on bass and Charlie King on drums.

Both John Brewster and Neeson shared lead vocals and on the recommendation of Bon Scott and Malcolm and Angus Young, they were offered a publishing and recording deal with AC/ DCs Sydney label Alberts. Some original members of the band continue to perform and will deliver a blistering show at Cardiff Panthers on Saturday, April 9.

The Original Angels Band, comprising the Brewster brothers along with Chris Bailey and Buzz Bidstrup, features the original celebrated line-up which recorded the classic albums from The Angels Face to Face, No Exit, Darkroom and debut release The Angels. But Neeson no longer performs with the group after quitting in 2000.

His exit came as a shock to the band, which had celebrated being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1999. But it didn't slow the remaining members down.

They got together for a benefit show for Ted Mulry a year later then reunited for victims of the Bali bombings.

Tickets to the concert cost $15 and are on sale at the club now.
