“They went on to become one of the bands that changed Australian music for ever” – Jimmy Barnes

This is it, folks, over the top!

It’s a hell of a story. And now it’s all on one massive album – Brothers, Angels & Demons.

This is a must-have for Angels fans, a collection of favourites and rarities, with nearly 50 years of music, starting with the Moonshine Jug & String Band, and also featuring choice cuts from The Angels’ chart-topping years with Doc Neeson, gems from the BrewsterBrothers repertoire, plus some cracking tracks from the recent line-up of The Angels, with Dave Gleeson on vocals and John Brewster’s son, Sam, on bass.

“We’ve survived all these years and gone on to make new music – something we can be proud of,” John Brewster says.

Brothers, Angels & Demons coincides with the publication of the first Angels book, The Angels (through Penguin Random House), written by Bob Yates with Rick and John Brewster, featuring a foreword by award-winning author Jimmy Barnes. Barnesy recalls the early days in Adelaide when Cold Chisel did gigs with the band then known as the Keystone Angels. He saw them become one of the greatest Australian bands of all time.

“Powerful, aggressive and joyous,” Jimmy writes. “If you wanted to show an example of great Australian pub rock then The Angels were it.”

Brothers, Angels & Demons, a 36-song collection, was curated by John and Rick Brewster, the backbone of the band.

The album concludes with the last songs recorded by the classic Brewster/Neeson/Brewster/Bailey/Bidstrup line-up, at the “Symphony of Angels” show in Adelaide in 2010. “A great legacy,” John states proudly. And a fitting tribute to the Angels who are no longer with us – Doc Neeson and Chris Bailey.

“It’s been an amazing journey,” John says. “A story of family, lots of good times and some bad … Brothers, Angels & Demons.”
