The last post in a trilogy of Australian/New Zealand band’s produced by Julian Mendelsohn in the mid-80’s brings us the second single from the last album by Melbourne-based band Models.
In 1986, Models went to the UK to record their next album, Models’ Media, with Julian Mendelsohn and Mark Opitz, at Trevor Horn’s state-of-the-art SARM West Studios in London.
Two singles peaked into the Top 30, “Evolution” in September, and “Let’s Kiss” in November. Models’ Media was released in December and peaked at No. 30 but was less successful than Out of Mind, Out of Sight.
Models also featured on the Australian Made Tour of late 1986 to January 1987 with INXS, Mental as Anything, The Triffids, I’m Talking, The Saints, Divinyls and Jimmy Barnes on the ticket. “Hold On” was released in March 1987 and peaked in the Top 30, their final single was a cover of The Beatles’ “Oh! Darling” in September which peaked in the Top 50.
