A cultural recognition to Melbourne’s independent music scene, the film includes interviews with musicians Robin Fox, Rod Cooper, Ross Knight (Cosmic Psychos), Bruce Milne (founder of Au-Go-Go Records, In-Fidelity Records), Ron Rude (Melbourne Punk & DIY / Indie Recording Pioneer) and Rowland S. Howard (Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party). Live performance footage comes from Dirty Three, The Stabs, Baseball, Bored!, I Spit on your Gravy, The Sailors, Love of Diagrams, Pisschrist and others. Sticky Carpet instinctively conveys the ongoing drive behind the bands - and even gets a little political. It shares the passion and experimentation of Melbourne’s music scene.
