Just caught up with the BBC 4 music documentary from last week “The Easybeats to AC/DC : Rise of Aussie Rock”.
I know there is much love around these parts for these BBC 4 documentaries and this one certainly maintained the standard. A fascinating look at how two families – the Albert Family who ran a music business and the Young family (George, Malcolm and Angus) defined the sound of Australian rock music. The talking heads – Angus, Harry Vanda (George Young’s co-writing partner), etc etc, all came across really well and showed that they just really enjoyed what they had done / were doing.
And call me slow (a lot of people do…) but I had no idea that the co-writer of “Friday On My Mind” (Easybeats) and “Love Is In The Air, was the older brother of Malcolm and Angus Young of AC/DC !!
