5.0 out of 5 stars A Fave from the 80's August 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Flash and the Pan might not be every listener's idea of rock and roll, but their down-under charm plays through in the intrumental work and the well-crafted lyrics. G'wan and have a listen! This is a disc that's not easy to find, and the songs are thought-provoking and fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clap Hands for The Media Man August 4, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
After the fluke success of "Hey Saint Peter" made Flash and The Pan's first album into an international hit, this side project from Harry Vanda and George Young had to contend with a follow-up. Vanda and Young, best known as the core of 60's hit makers The Easybeats and producers to AC/DC (George Young is family to Malcom and Angus), were already no strangers to hit song-writing. The result was "Media Man" charting in several countries, and the album expanding on the band's cult audience.

The formula remained pretty much the same. Heavy new wave synths paired to either dance-beats or down tempo gloominess, along with monotone, processed vocals. This doesn't click quite as often as it does on the debut album, and there's nothing here as memorable as "Hey St Peter" or "The Band Played On/Down Among The Dead Men." But more than half the album clicks, with "Media Man" being the dance-hit and the title track being the best of the bummers. It's also worth pointing out that, despite the minimalist trappings, these guys were pretty incredible musicians. Give a listen to the piano solo on "Welcome To The Universe" for proof on that one.

They also had an odd sense of humor. The original album cover was the artwork of the debut covered with black ink and a scratching to reveal the art underneath. A sticker on the album gave the band name and title, along with an illustration of a child watching a dice rolling bye him as his eyes open wider. The dice has three hands, and in American Sign language, the dice is spelling out UFO. If you held the cover up to a bright light, the blacked-over cover below becomes clearly visible. It's that kind of full creativity from bands that I sometimes miss in the post LP era.

5.0 out of 5 stars i wish you could have heard it back in 1978... October 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The year was 1978, a very good year for music. Flash And The Pan released Lights In The Nights and basically took over (at least parts of)Europe within weeks. I don't know if they became popular in Australia prior to winning our hearts, but we, the rock music lovers in Europe completely cave in to this album. We thought 'what a ambitious brother those crazy cool ACDC Young boys have, good for them'. Once again, it was back in 1978 and you have (although that is very hard to do) to listen to it in such context. Many of the moments here, like the beginning of the 'Welcome To The Universe' were such a novelty back then. This album has definately lost some of it's power right now because the sounds and samples do not appear so extraorinary any more. Those ambient parts mixed within such rock music back then were true novelty to us. If you are looking for another great solid album from the 1970ies, rock's golden era please try Lights In The Night. My favorite songs here are; Headhunter, Restless and Lights In The Night.
