One of the coolest bands to come out of Australia in the late 70s, #TheAngels aka #AngelCity in the U.S. did not fare well in the States due to mismanagement by their new label. Huge in Australia and somehow discovered by bar bands in the US, the Angels/Angel City blended AC/DC type rhythms with more melodic and sometimes pop oriented choruses. Fronted by charismatic #DocNeeson, the band created memorable songs like (Take Me Away To) #Marseille, #TakeALongLine, #WastedSleeplessNights, and the song that would become an Australian rock anthem #AmIEverGonnaSeeYourFaceAgain that invoked crowd participation to which a tradition was created anytime a band plays the song.

Bus trip from Prague to Budapest listening to my “downloaded” music.... back to back - dead and buried - taken by Cancer. So unfair. Miss you Doc. Anyone reading, listen to Coming Down right now. Loud. His voice, so unique. And Bowie is happy on his home planet no doubt. I hope.

The Angels - Two Minute Warning (1984)
In my opinion, the last great Angels album. From a very mediocre start to their career with their first album (self titled), that I must admit doesn't contain even one song that I would hold in regard, the Angels just raised the bar so high from ‘Face To Face', their second effort, to this - so I guess I can forgive them for their first miss-fire. ‘Small Price' starts off as a bit of a mood builder - reminds me of driving in the outback on a really hot day, as the first time I listened to this album was in the early 90s driving back to my parent’s house in the Mallee region for Christmas in the old Escort panel van I used to own. Wind down the window to get some ‘air conditioning’ only to be blasted by a 43°C gust. The second song ‘Look The Other Way' is one of their most energic, complete with Doc Neeson doing one of his renowned psychopathic monologue things in the middle. As usual, the sound is full and powerful, simple yet tasteful, especially Rick Brewster’s guitar solos. There's a couple of throwaway songs, but highlights include the funk-infused rock and jungle rhythms of ‘Sticky Little Bitch' and the absolutely fantastic ‘Between The Eyes' - one of the greatest riffs ever written near the start of the song and the lyric 'the final solution is you' which sends shivers down my spine every time i hear it. Sometimes it's hard to understand what Doc Neeson is getting at with his lyrics, but every now and then he does a one-liner that just hits the nail on the head. Album closes with the blistering ‘Run for the Shelter'. It’s amazing to me that the Angels didn’t become huge worldwide, because for awhile they well and truely shit over nearly everything else in the market. #theangels #twominutewarning #vinyl #hardrockvinyl #ozrock #australianrock #80shardrock #riseoftherat #hblock101 #albumreview #albumcoverart #rickbrewster #johnbrewster #brenteccles #docneeson

He was selling postcards from a paper stand
The whiskey bottle in his withered hand
Put his finger on a photo from an old magazine
Saw himself in the shadow of his dream
They found him with his head inside a tin-pot crown
Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
Called him agitator, spy and thief
Shut him up in solitary third degree #theangels #docneeson #rip #4yearsgone #aussierock #aussie #rockandroll #rock #pubrock #aussiepubrock

Bernard Patrick Neeson OAM (4 January 1947 – 4 June 2014) - one of the greatest frontmen in Australian rock music. Sadly missed. #markingtime #docneeson #docneesonrip #docneesontribute #theangels #nowaygetfuckedfuckoff #takealongline #aftertherain #shadowboxer #darkroom #noexit #watchthered #eatcity #nosecrets #angelcity #aussierock #aussiepubrock #brewsterbrothers

Thought I would share this via @repostapp . Firstly if your disco machines broken - sorry ( not that I mind disco but there's a great reason ) , #4decadesago today , a steady label from #Sydney called #Alberts released one of the #truly #greatest #rock albums released by an #Australian band . #TheAngels or as many people in the #US and #U.K. Knew them #AngelCity . Stablemates and #labelmates to that other distinct band #ACDC ( and for that matter the first #Choirboys album ) this album has the #production of #Vanda and #Young belted into every single second . With their unique lyrics they were different again . Tonight on the #TripleMNetwork from 11PM they will be featuring it in entirety WITH interviews including some with the late #DocNeeson . I have shared this courtesy of #TripleMBrisbane . To those overseas with a spot for harder rock - no less than #GunsAndRoses insisted on them as support as #TheAngels were a very significant influence in their career .

At the last #angels concert before #docneeson became ill #memories #treasured #friends #music #aussierock

Pretending to be someone else is pretty fun. For that hour You actually forget who you were before and you become this other person. This night I was Doc! #docneeson #theangels #rockband #thescavengers #music #life
