Radio Birdman Story To Be Told In New Documentary

The Radio Birdman story will be told through the new documentary ‘Descent Into The Maelstrom’.

Jonathan J. Sequeira directed the documentary. “Descent into the Maelstrom isn’t just the story of Radio Birdman, it’s the story of a scene, a movement, in Australia, started by the band,” he said in a statement. “It’s about doing your music, and your art without compromise, when everyone tries to shut you down. Radio Birdman inspired the outsiders in Australian society to do their own thing. Like the band, the film is a completely independent production – the band’s take no-prisoners attitude fed into the making of it. The intensity of the music and the individuals is still there, coming off the screen, and it insists that you too settle for nothing less than the best.”

Radio Birdman were around Sydney from 1974 to 1978. The band influenced Midnight Oil and Cold Chisel.

As well as the documentary, a new 15 track album ‘Funhouse Jukebox’ will be released as the soundtrack to the movie. As well as Radio Birdman the soundtrack will feature songs by The Saints, The Easybeats and The Ramones as well as rare tracks from pre-Birdman outfits The Rats (feat Rob Younger, Warwick Gilbert, Ron Keeley) and TV Jones (aka Cunning Stunt feat Deniz Tek).
