In this video interview Steve Flack talks to brothers John and Rick Brewster, founding members of legendary Australian rock band The Angels.
The Angels were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in October 1998 with the line-up of Bailey, John and Rick Brewster, Eccles and Neeson. Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, declared that "The Angels had a profound effect on the Australian live music scene of the late 1970s/early 1980s. [They] helped redefine the Australian pub rock tradition... [their] brand of no-frills, hard-driving boogie rock attracted pub goers in unprecedented numbers. In turn, The Angels' shows raised the standard expected of live music. After 20 years on the road, the band showed little sign of easing up on the hard rock fever."

Peter Walker was a founding of Bakery, an Australian progressive hard rock band that later featured vocalist Barry Leef and bassist Jackie Orszaczky.
After 6 years on the road, Peter migrated into the studio world via Charles Fisher and Trafalgar Studios where he began engineering albums, often with people he knew from his touring days. Much of that work was un-credited as his specialty was replacing existing parts (or beefing them up) for albums of well-known bands including 'Eagle Rock' (Daddy Cool), 'Hey True Blue' (John Williamson) and 'Khe Sahn' (Cold Chisel).
Other local acts Peter has engineered/produced include, Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Hoodoo Gurus, John Williamson, Air Supply, Tommy Emmanuel and Buffalo. He also did recordings for touring international acts like Elvis Costello, David Bowie, Police and Duran Duran while they were in Sydney.
