Flash-Thunder

Once again sorry for the late post everybody, I'm back in school again and quite busy, I'll try my best to stay updated. I guess New Wave doesn't really count towards the style that I'm trying to go for here on my blog but I think exceptions can be made. It's a duo that some of you may have heard of, they are known as Flash and The Pan. The singer's style is relaxed and cool which will be evident in the songs I will post. Once again with this group they earned a quick flash of success with a few songs. Without further ado, here are a few of the classics:

Song: Midnight Man
Album: Early Morning Wake Up Call


Song: Walking In The Rain
Album: Flash and The Pan

Song: California
Album: Flash and The Pan

The duo consisted of Harry Vanda and George Young which were both former members of The Easybeats. They formed Flash and The Pan during the late 1970's. The band gained popularity in the U.S. with their single Hey St. Peter among other albums and had some success in Europe. Though they never had supporting tours in the U.S. their short lived fame never really spread. Another reason why the band never had long lasting success was because of the part-time nature of the band, they never seemed truly dedicated to it. That's all for today, stay cool everyone.

  6. I've never heard of these guys. They have a unique sound though. And so succeed you have to be consistent. Fans are fickle creatures.
