Flash & The Pan - Midnight Man

The Australian duo, Flash & the Pan, consisted of George Young & Harry Vanda. Both use to be in the group Easybeat in the 60's. With that group, they charted in the Top 40 with the song Friday On My Mind.

After Easybeat split, the duo went on to write and produce for other artists such as David Bowie, Peter Frampton, Blondie, Rod Stewart, among others. Then, when George's younger brothers Angus and Malcolm started a group, he help launch AC/DC.

In The 80's the duo went New Wave and had a few minor hits with Hey St. Peter and Media Man. In 1985 they released Midnight Man and became a quick dance floor favorite. Here it is in it's entirety.
