Melbourne 80’s art-rock wizards, Models, are set to excite audiences nationwide this summer and now due to popular demand have added two additional dates in Melbourne and Geelong.
We are extremely excited to announce that 80’s icons Huxton Creepers will be reforming to join Models for one very special night only at the Croxton Bandroom on Friday the 29th Jan.
The upcoming tour will see Models play shows in all major capital cities where the band will perform hits from classic albums: Alphabravocharliedeltaechofoxtrotgolf (1980), Cut Lunch (1981), Local and/or General (1981), The Pleasure of Your Company (1983), and Out Of Mind Out Of Sight (1985).
The breakthrough lineup of Sean Kelly (Guitar/ Lead Vocals), Andrew Duffield (Keyboard/ Vocals) and Mark Ferrie (Bass/ Vocals) will be joined by drummer extraordinaire Ashley Davies to perform models classics including ‘I Hear Motion’, ‘Two Cabs To The Toucan’, ‘Big On Love’, ‘Local and/or General’, ‘Evolution’,  ‘Happy Birthday IBM’, ‘Atlantic Romantic’, ‘Telstar’ and ‘Out Of Mind Out Of Sight’.
Emanating from the creative maelstrom of Melbourne’s post punk art-rock scene, Models released a succession of acclaimed albums culminating in the #1 smash ‘Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight’. Models were inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame, in 2010.
Melbourne’s Huxton Creepers formed in 1984 with their first recorded work ‘King Of The Road’ appearing on Bruce Milne’s Asleep At The Wheel compilation. The band hit big with singles ‘My Cherie Amour’, ‘I Will Persuade You’ and their cover of Manfred Mann’s ‘Pretty Flamingo’.
