Summary "The dramatic rise of a distinguished and fertile music scene in Western Australia is undeniable. This film searches for answers within a labyrinth of theories, facts and opinions for just what is responsible for the sudden explosion of success in WA music. Is it the distance, the environment, the community or something else responsible for the sparkling talent pool? This rockumentary explores the history and the environment behind the golden age of home-grown and nationally acclaimed talent in Western Australia. Using live and archival footage, director Aidan O'Bryan presents the Perth bands of the past, the present and the future who have made and will keep WA a key source of world class music as well as minerals. His interviews with influential personalities and musicians give an insight into what it was that finally ignited an original music scene that had taken only tentative steps since its birth from punk in the late 70s"--ABC website.
