the film

Sydney, 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 slowly accumulating a cult-like following a ‘New Race’ of disaffected youth who rally around the band. Descent into the Maelstrom is the true story of Radio Birdman from their original formation to the present. It shows what the band meant to the fans and how they changed Australia by inspiring 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.
