James Freud- RIP
At the young age of 51, James Freud has left the stage, and gone on to the next realm... So sad to lose such talent at a young age-- RIP James.
The MODELS were one of my very fav. bands of the 80s-- I first found out about them during my 2 month travels in Oz back in '85. They were in their prime back then... For some reason, they never made it to America, but they were really BIG in Australia...
Here's a little bio on James Freud, the talented singer of the Models:
"After the Models disbanded and his first solo album fizzled in the charts, James Freud linked up with Mental As Anything's Martin Plaza and formed the dance-oriented Beatfish. This duo's love for soul and R&B surprised fans of the Models and the Mentals, sounding unlike anything either of the artists had ever done before. Their self-titled debut was released in Australia in 1991 (on RCA) and featured some fine dance songs ("All Around The World", "Wheels Of Love") but most of it was faceless R&B by a couple of white guys from Australia. After one more single, a great cover of the Youngbloods' "Get Together", Plaza returned to his solo career (and the Mentals) while Freud has kept a low profile ever since. ~ Steve "Spaz" Schnee, Rovi"
