Michael Dwyer hosts Q&A with Stephen Cummings and director Mike Brook

ACMI Cinema 2, Federation Square, Melbourne

Stephen Cummings is one of Australia's most revered rock 'n' roll icons. Rising to fame as frontman of ‘70s legends The Sports, he has spent more than 30 years at the forefront of the local music scene, forging a reputation both as one of Australian rock's greatest lyrical storytellers and also one of its most incendiary critics.

Based on his scathing tell-all memoir Will It Be Funny Tomorrow, Billy?, Don't Throw Stones tells Cummings' story in his own words – as well as the words of those he has so gleefully skewered. Featuring interviews with Michael Gudinski, Steve Kilbey, Joe Camilleri and many more, Don't Throw Stones is a revealing portrait of three decades of rock-world gossip, larger-than-life personalities and good, old-fashioned artistic beef.

the church


It’s a rare band that finds itself recognised as a bona fide legend in the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame while simultaneously remaining a virtual enigma to the mainstream.

The Church’s accidental signature tune, Under The Milky Way, is like a lighthouse on the edge of a continent to be discovered: 24 albums over 34 years, interspersed with countless solo and other diversions that have almost killed them a dozen times, yet always reaffirm a commitment to their own unparalleled chemistry and the undeniable act of creation.

On the eve of their magnificent, uncompromising 25th studio album, FURTHER/ DEEPER, Steve Kilbey, Peter Koppes, Tim Powles and new member Ian Haug join BIGSOUND to talk about one of the most prolific, dynamic and remarkable careers on the progressive fringe of rock.

Originally formed in Melbourne in 1970, Daddy Cool’s debut single Eagle Rock was released in May 1971 and shot straight to number one on the Australian singles chart. It recently topped a Max TV poll of the greatest Australian songs of all time. Their 1971 LP Daddy Who? Daddy Cool! also reached number one, becoming the first Australian rock album to sell more than 100,000 copies. For the first time in 7 years, the four original members of Daddy Cool will discuss with Age writer Michael Dwyer their career and upcoming induction into the Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame.
