Five from The Angels

‘Doc’ Neeson died this week. He was the front man for The Angels, a classic Australian rock band that formed in the 70’s. This is an opportune time to put up five of their best. They were a bit of a cross between blues and rock. I last saw them back in 1993 when they rocked the Metro in Fremantle and Doc was in top form playing the crowd.

No Secrets – this is my favourite Angels song. Great melody, great lyrics, all round greatness!

Am I ever Gonna See Your Face Again – this was their classic live track and in response the title line, the crowd would yell No way, get fucked, fuck off – well I suppose you had to be there – and I was, and I loved it!

Marseilles – good old-fashioned rock music that would be just at home in a stadium or a pub.

Fashion and Fame – Good solid rock song.

We Gotta Get Out of This Place – a cover, and a good one. This suits Doc Neeson’s voice.

RIP Doc.
