Descent into the Maelstrom
Australia. 1974. A group of outsiders band together with a mission: in a world of satin jumpsuits and screaming teens on Countdown, they form the high energy rock’n’roll band RADIO BIRDMAN, forever determined to keep compromise from their art. Switched off, shut down and booted out of venue after venue they stay determined to do things their own way, the band slowly accumulates a cult-like following of disaffected youth who rally around the band.
This is the true story of Radio Birdman, from their original formation to the present. Exploring what the band meant to the fans, DESCENT INTO THE MAELSTROM sees the band inspire a golden age of local music, from Cold Chisel to Midnight Oil. Featuring interviews with all surviving members of the band and not shying away from the internal conflict which sometimes fuelled the band’s performances, the documentary is crammed full of Radio Birdman music and rare archival footage and photos, some not seen for over 40 years!
