Something Quite Peculiar Interview with Director and Producer Team Mike and Patti Brook – The Last New Wave

On this episode Andrew invites director/editor Mike Brook and his sister and producer/narrator Patti Brook in to his home to discuss their documentary, Something Quite Peculiar: The Life and Times of Steve Kilbey. This is fascinating documentary that looks at the iconic voice behind one of Australia’s greatest songs – Under the Milky Way. It questions the role of the artist in relation to the art that they create, especially in regards to that art having taken on a life of its own.

As this was recorded in Andrew’s home, of course it would be inevitable that his dogs would show up. In the second half of the interview there is a little bit of ambient dog noise.

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he's been talking about how great films are and usually that's been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife. Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
