Celebrate the musical adventurousness, sly humour and pioneering nature of the early Australian alternative music scene with a sound that is as fresh now as it was then.
Recently inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, Models first gained notoriety in the early 80’s with ground breaking mini album ‘Cut Lunch’ but it was their long player ‘The Pleasure Of Your Company’ featuring the hit ‘I Hear A Motion’ which cracked it commercially for the band and scored them the opening slot for David Bowie’s ‘Serious Moonlight’ Tour.
This line-up of MODELS features Sean Kelly (vocals/guitar), Andrew Duffield (keyboards/vocals), Mark Ferrie (bass/vocals) and Barton Price (drums). For hardcore MODELS fans, these shows present an opportunity to experience the ultimate edgy pop arrangements and experimental synth stylings of their earlier releases with the big beat of their later chart topping hits.
The band dips into its repertoire to remind us that the 80s music scene in Australia was more about the excitement of expanding musical barriers and forging new styles than big hair and shoulder pads.
Triple J’s Music Director Richard Kingsmill put together a brilliant J File on the band which can be downloaded at JJJ.
