The Angels came hurtling out of Adelaide in the 1970s with the searing sounds of the Brewster brothers and Doc Neeson, a frontman who was beyond intense, transforming the Aussie music scene from pretty pop to gritty guitar rock. Their songs remain etched into Australia’s DNA: Am I Ever Goin’ to See Your Face Again, Take a Long Line, No Secrets. After rising to become a behemoth of the local rock scene in the late 1970s they were on the path to international success… until they just missed their chance. Adelaide director Maddie Parry (Hannah Gadsby: Nanette) has made a surprisingly intimate documentary, using home videos and never-before-seen photos, exploring the internal tensions that strained relationships to breaking point, even while producing incandescent rock’n’roll.
