Dogs in Space is a 1987 Australian film set in the post punk
underground scene in Melbourne in 1979.
Directed by Richard Lowenstein and staring Michael Hutchence
as Sam, the drug-addled frontman of the fictitious band from
which the film takes its name.
I have fond memories of this film, going to see it was in fact the
first date for me and my wife, one which I picked and no doubt
told her a few things about me and my tastes in music.
The now long out of print soundtrack is a winner.
Packed with songs from the era, plus some songs from the film
and some tracks from artists from the Melbourne scene,
its a great nostalgia trip.
