John Brewster Talks Up Guests Of The Angels For Brothers Angels & Demons Tour

The Angels will head out nationwide again in October celebrating the release of their book Brothers, Angels & Demons.

For the tour The Angels will take along Rose Tattoo, Hitmen DTK, Mi-Sex, Diesel and the Dave Wilson Band.

Rose Tattoo have a long history with The Angels. “They were stable mates at Alberts when we signed in the mid1970s, along with AC/DC, Ted Mulry Gang, John Paul Young, Harry Vanda and George Young,” says John. “We have toured many times in the past with the Tatts and want to do it again. They have monster songs and great attitude.” Another nice link is that long-time friend and former The Angels member Bob Spencer will be playing with the Tatts during the tour.

Hitmen DTK were a band who were heavily influenced by The Angels. “Johnny Kannis credits The Angels for introducing them to the suburbs at a time when they were an inner-city band,” says John. “They did many gigs with us around Sydney and are welcome guests.”

In fact, Hitmen DTK’s Johnny says The Angels kick-started their career in the suburbs. “You guys introduced us to the beer barns of Australia and to an audience that loved passionate, adrenalin driven rock n roll, an audience we’d never have gotten on our own,” he says. “Through this first up connection, our big break came when we caught the eye of your producer Mark Opitz who signed on to produce our debut (self-titled) album.”

No strangers to performing together of late, MI-SEX and The Angels have a special shared history, especially given The Angels book author Bob Yates was former manager for the band. “MI-SEX were signed to CBS back when we joined that stable in 1980,” says John. “They were on tour with us in the USA at the same time as us, so we have a shared history. Last year we had them as special guests on our Hard Wired tour and they were fantastic.”

MI-SEX’s Murray Burns remembers the first time the band saw The Angels in the late 1970s at the encouragement of Bob Yates. “The place was jam-packed and their high-energy performance was a revelation to us,” he says. “MISEX had a very different sound to them, but watching that show was a crucial beginning to reshaping the energy of what we were doing on stage.”

Diesel came onto The Angels radar a bit later – it was the early 1990s after the launch of his band Johnny Diesel and The Injectors. “They [the band] were managed by our then drummer Brent Eccles,” says John. “In later years, Diesel played on the same bill as us at Day On The Green gigs and others. He joined us on stage at the Chris Bailey benefit in Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre in 2013, a most memorable though sad occasion. He is a good friend… great to have him with us.”

The newest inclusion, the Dave Wilson Band, impressed Rick Brewster from the outset. “Dave is a fantastic bluesrock guitarist,” he says. “He and his three-piece band play wild versions of Hendrix-Stevie Ray Vaughan-Clapton etc. I met Dave 18-months ago and have since had many sessions with him. He has opened up doors in guitar playing that I never knew existed. He has become a good friend and also teaches my son Jody. Come early, the Dave Wilson Band is not to be missed.”
