Sample text

Malcolm: ‘Actually, they weren’t a bad band. I was surprised when I saw him the first time. ’ It was only a matter of time before George also checked out what his little brother was up to. During 1973, George and Harry Vanda arrived with a large reel-to-reel tape recorder and got the group down on tape for a second time. On playback the band just couldn’t believe it was actually them. Mark Sneddon: ‘I remember listening back to it one time and going, “Holy shit! Is that us? Fuck! ”’ They subsequently went into EMI Studios with George and Harry and recorded the pair’s Evie and, possibly, Guitar Band.

The early Velvets had a keyboards-driven Doors-like sound, a wild, destructive stage act like The Move and The Who, and a literally fire-breathing singer in Steve Phillipson. They’d recorded a single of Jefferson Airplane’s Somebody To Love backed with She Comes In Colours by Love and took out the 24 local Battle of the Bands competition in Newcastle, but it was now time to broaden their horizons. After they settled in Sydney, the reshuffled band brought in singer Brian Johnson — no relation to the man who would later figure prominently in Malcolm’s career — and were after a second guitarist.

It was just a great atmosphere. I always thought they were a good band. They came on, they played, they were really short and sweet. I thought, this is very flash. ’ Almost a year to the day later, The Who and The Small Faces scorched Australian soil with a violent stage act and monstrous volume. The Small Faces’ Steve Marriott spewed venom at the crowd at the Sydney Stadium and The Who trashed everything that they couldn’t blow up. The entire show was an exercise in attitude and Malcolm and Angus Young took it all in with eyes and jaws wide open.
