Models were an alternative rock group formed in Melbourne, Australia, in August 1978 and went into hiatus in 1988. They are often incorrectly referred to as The Models. They re-formed in 2000, 2006 and 2008 to perform reunion concerts. “Out of Mind, Out of Sight”, their only No. 1 hit, appeared on the Australian singles charts in July 1985. The related album, Out of Mind, Out of Sight, peaked at No. 3 on the Australian albums charts after its release in August. Out of Mind, Out of Sight appeared on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with the single, “Out of Mind, Out of Sight”, peaking at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. An earlier song from the same album, “Barbados”, had peaked at No. 2 on the Australian singles chart.
The fourth single from the album “Cold Fever” would be remixed by Julian Mendelsohn, in Australia the 12″ single would be backed with a Nick Launay 12″ version of “God Bless America” but in the US a 4 track 12″ was released with an extended version of “I Hear Motion” by Nick Launay, a live version of “Out Of Mind Out Of Sight” and a non-LP track “Preacher From The Black Lagoon”
