IT’S DIFFICULT to think about Australia’s contribution to hard rock without acknowledging the looming spectre of AC/DC, a band that pretty much created the template for pug-nosed riff-rock that still shakes the establishment to this very day. Dig a little deeper into the Australian musical scene, however, and you’ll find a host of other acts that were just as impressive, including Cold Chisel, Rose Tattoo, Jimmy Barnes and… the Angels or, as they were dubbed in every territory outside of Oz, Angel City. An AC/DC connection was, actually, crucial to the Angel’s story, in more ways than just musical. It was Bon Scott and Malcolm Young who recommended the band to their record label, Albert Productions, who signed them in 1975. Developing a musical swagger built on the riff hungry shuffle of AC/DC’s finest moments, the band soon carved out a following that sent their domestic releases skyrocketing up the charts. Signing worldwide to Epic Records in 1980, the band’s first foray into the great wide open was ‘Face To Face’, a compilation of the best tracks lifted from two domestic releases. Sure, the music is brittle and deeply indebted to AC/DC’s uncompromising raucous boogie but the twist in the tale is the band’s lyrical component. Front man Doc Neeson’s hypnotic story telling formed the backbone of a style that caught the imagination and propelled them to success on stages from London to Los Angeles. ‘Face To Face’ remains one of the greatest and most enduring albums of the era.
