Music from Australia and New Zealand in the year 1978:

Flash 'n' The Pan's promo-video for the hit single 'Down Among The Dead Men', taken from the 1978 album 'Flash 'n' The Pan'.

Note: George Young and Harry Vanda first rose to international stardom when playing in the Easybeats back in the mid 1960's. When the group disbanded in 1969, Vanda and Young set themselves up as a production/songwriting team with a clientel which included Amen Corner, The Tremeloes, Marmalade, Shocking Blue, Los Bravos, Suzi Quatro and Paul Revere and the Raiders.

Back in Australia and at Albert studios, the duo continued writing and produced hits for Ted Mulry, John Paul Young, Stevie Wright (ex-Easybeat), William Shackespear and many others as well as producing Rose Tattoo, the Angels and AC/DC - a little known hard rock band which featured George's younger brothers Angus and Mallcom Young.

In the later months of 1978, Flash 'n' The Pan released their debut self-titled album. Flash continued charting through out the early to mid 1980s with hits 'Down Among The Dead Men' (1978), 'Media Man' (1981), 'Waiting For The Train' (1983) and 'Midnight Man' (1985).
