Face to Face lasted 18 months, but in that time the band became a household name, with hit records, a Sarie Award for Song of the Year with 'Here We Are' (1984), sold-out gigs and posters adorning teenybopper bedrooms across the nation. It was a right royal rave and the five musicians who made up the band – Keith McFarlane, brothers Simon Le Fevre and John Le Fevre, Simon Fellows and Jarrod Aston – became instantly recognisable personalities.
