Flash and the Pan was an Australian new wave musical group (essentially an ongoing studio project) formed in 1976 by Harry Vanda and George Young, both former members of the Easybeats; they were a production and songwriting team known as Vanda & Young. The group’s first chart success was their 1976 debut single, Hey, St. Peter, which reached #5 in the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart. The next single, Down Among the Dead Men, peaked at #4 in Australia in 1978; it was re-titled as And the Band Played On for international release.
Both songs were on their eponymous debut album which followed in December 1978.
