Delivering raucous hard rock in the tradition of contemporaries like AC/DC and Rose Tattoo, the Angels were among the longest lasting and most beloved bands ever to emerge from the Australian pub circuit..
Their roots date back to 1973, when singer Doc Neeson and guitarist Rick Brewster first teamed at university in an eccentric acoustic covers group dubbed the Moonshine Jug and String Band. By the following year they began adopting a more straightforward and electric approach, rechristening themselves the Keystone Angels in the process.
Soon abbreviated to simply the Angels, their original line-up consisted of Neeson (nicknamed the "Mad Irishman" in honour of his crazed behaviour on and off stage) and Brewster, along with the lather's brother John on guitar and drummer Graham "Buzz Throckman" Bidstrup.
In 1976, the Angels' were discovered by AC/DC's Angus Young and Bon Scott, and soon entered the studio to record their debut single "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again," a major hit. With the addition of Chris Bailey on bass (not to be confused with the Saints' frontman), a tour opening for AC/DC followed..
�The Angels� popularity continued for the next 20 years or so with healthy record sales and a plethora of �Angels�-related websites on the internet, and in 1998 they were admitted into the ARIA�s �Hall of Fame�.
