Lost Alternative 80s: The Models

There’s something distinctly 1983 about this clip from Oz rockers The Models. The perfect blend of innocence, arrogance, and no little amount of hairspray. Although ‘I Hear Motion’ wasn’t the band’s biggest hit (see 1985’s ‘Out of Mind, Out of Sight’) a version of it blew me away on the only occasion I saw the band live in 1983, and the infectious Stevie Wonder-esque keyboard riff has been lodged firmly in the cranium ever since. This clip features the band’s classic line-up, including the late James Freud on bass, and ex-Palmerstonian Barton Price on drums.
