Biography

There are three artists with this name
1. An Australian rock band
2. An American girl group best known for “My Boyfriend’s Back”, a #1 hit in the United States in 1963
3. An American R&B group
none of these are to be confused with any of the artists called Angels, without the definite article.

(1) The Angels (Australia)

USA as Angel City (1980-1985), The Angels from Angel City (1988-1989), The Angels (1992).

In November 1970, brothers Rick and John Brewster formed The Moonshine Jug and String Band. In 1971 the band was joined by Irish immigrant Bernard “Doc” Neeson.

The band in 1973 released their debut EP Keep You on the Move, which made the top 5 in Adelaide. This was followed in 1974 by the single “That’s All Right With Me”. Both these releases were on John Woodruff’s Sphere label. Woodruff went on to become the band’s manager for most of its career.

In 1974 they changed their name to The Keystone Angels, switched to electric instruments and began playing 1950s rock and roll on the pub circuit.

In 1975, the band supported AC/DC during a South Australian tour, and later performed as the backing band for Chuck Berry.

In 1975, the band was offered a recording deal with the Alberts label and became The Angels. As this point the band was a four-piece with Neeson on bass guitar, Charlie King (Peter Christopolous) on drums, Rick Brewster on lead guitars and John Brewster on lead vocals and rhythm guitar. The band recorded “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” and was released on Rocka album.

    Will you ever get your shit together and sort multiple artists with same name, LastFM? [2] OH MY GOD RIGHT. It should be easy! They should just ask 'which artist do you mean?' and you select it!
