Melbourne 1978, and the members of the band Dogs in Space surf the wave of the punk music scene. With introduction from Producer Glenys Rowe and Director Richard Lowenstein
"…A historical document for reasons other than its set and setting. It features one of the few film performances of INXS front man Michael Hutchence, who headlines the cast as Sam, leader of a band from which the film takes its name. They mostly play in the central shared house setting, nowhere big or special, and certainly nowhere without booze splattered on the floor." - Luck Buckmaster, The Guardian
