Incorporating an early ’60s Girl Group vibe into the standard late ’70s Sydney influences (covers ran from The Shangri-Las’ Remember (Walking in The Sand) to The Standells‘ Riot On Sunset Strip), The Passengers measured up well to Blondie comparisons, and their posthumous single, Face With No Name, was the first release on the new Phantom imprint.

Angie went on to front her own group with her by-then husband Deniz Tek in 1981, featuring Clyde Bramley (Hoodoo Gurus) on bass. A solitary single was released, Frozen World b/w Why Tell Me?, on the Citadel label in 1984.
