Tracing our evolution from the fledgling sounds of the 50s to the global electronic beat of the 21st century, LONG WAY TO THE TOP is a 7-hour extravaganza of Australian and New Zealand rock and roll.
A riveting time capsule of music, news, fashion and politics, LONG WAY TO THE TOP captures it all - from the bodgie sex parties and surfie culture to Vietnam and the Sunbury near-death experience; from pub rock and Australia's own sharpies to glam rock, punk, grunge, dance and beyond. While not always pretty stories, they need to be told.
Three years in the making and packed with performances, interviews and graphic footage gathered from dusty archives and the private collections of fans and stars alike, LONG WAY TO THE TOP features:
Johnny O'Keefe; Bee Gees; Col Joye; Johnny Devlin; Little Pattie; Easybeats; Billy Thorpe; The Masters Apprentices; The Seekers; Molly Meldrum; Daddy Cool; Cold Chisel; AC/DC; Midnight Oil; John Paul Young; Skyhooks; Mental As Anything; Split Enz; Divinyls; INXS; Nick Cave; Men At Work; The Go-Betweens; Do Re Mi; Crowded House; Hunters & Collectors; Johnny Farnham; Paul Kelly; Yothu Yindi; Ollie Olsen; Itch-e & Scratch-e; Cruel Sea; Kylie Minogue; Christine Anu; AND MANY MORE...
