Models first big hit ‘I Hear Motion’ was released on 20 September, 1983. Sean Kelly, Andrew Duffield, Mark Ferrie and Ash Davies will take Models back on the road to celebrate ’40 Years of Motion’.

‘I Hear Motion’ reached no 12 in Australia. It came from the band’s third album ‘The Pleasure of Your Company’, produced by Nick Launay, who had worked with The Jam and XTC and had also just produced Midnight Oil’s ’10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1’ and would go on to produce David Byrne, INXS and Silverchair.

‘The Pleasure of Your Company’, released in October 1983 also reached no 12 in Australia. The album featured backing vocals from Kate Ceberano, who was a member of I’m Talking at the time and Jenny Morris, who also worked with INXS before later having her own hit album with ‘Body and Soul’.
