MODELS - Preacher from the black lagoon (LYRICS)

Preacher from the Black Lagoon (Sean Kelly / James Freud)

Thar she blows, then she sucks
Siren like a fire-truck's
Swinging a censer, swinging a cross
Makes a prophet, makes a loss

Laeti triumphante, adeste fideles
this is the preacher from the black lagoon
this is the bungling big buffoon

One, two, three, four, now he's running out the door
Five, six, seven, eight, Mister Ex-communicate
One, two, three, four, now he's running out the door
Five, six, seven, eight, Mister Ex-communicate.

this is the preacher from the black lagoon
this is the bungling big buffoon.



Here's a performance from the Espy, VIC, in 2010.

Preacher was originally released on the b-side of Big on Love, but it's been released on Collection, and is a fan-favourite!

"Laeti triumphante, adeste fideles" translates to 'O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant'.

MODELS - fashion pix from 1982


These fashion shots of MODELS were printed in an fashion/music crossover magazine called Stiletto. This issue was released in 1983. The article was made known to me by John Morrison (thanks mate!). Interestingly, the founder of Stiletto is Jonathan Morris (https://www.facebook.com/jonathan.morris.735) - weird coincidence!

Here's the cover of the magazine -


The newspaper article itself was calls MODELS MODEL. Enjoy! :)



Nice hat, James!

John Farnham - Whispering Jack curio

An amazing piece of 80s cd history is shown below.

It's a copy of the John Farnham "Whispering Jack" cd. But this one is pressed
in 24-carat Kalgoorlie gold!

I'm not sure what price it retailed for back in 1987, but forums list it as seen for $100. There is currently one on ebay for $250, but I doubt it will sell at that price.

It seems that this limited cd was promoted heavily by Qantas, as there is evidence it was up for sale on the international flights to US/UK back in the day, as late as 1988.

Here's some photos I've gathered from the web. I'd love to own one, but they are too expensive.
