Radio Birdman were one of the great Detroit rock bands, except they came out of Australia. Inspired by The Stooges, MC5 and Aussie garage rock, the band formed determined to do things their own way, no compromise.
Kicked out and shut down, ‘the loudest band in the land’ started up a new scene of rock’n’roll in 1970s Sydney, attracting a crowd of inner-city kids looking for a new music. After Seymour Stein signed them to Sire Records, their intensity turned inwards, resulting in a bitter breakup during the ‘Van of Hate’ tour of the UK.
Years later they reform, undimmed. Can they manage to resolve their conflicts or will they self-destruct again?
After the film, Radio Birdman founding member Deniz Tek and director Jonathan Sequeira will be here for a Q&A.
