When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation.

Thirty years ago The Angels were kings of the Australian rock scene. Eight and a half years ago lead singer Doc Neeson was involved in a horrific car accident and was forced to leave the band. One year ago he and the rest of the original members were talking through lawyers in a bitter legal battle over naming rights. And then Doc's manager David Edwards had an idea. Instead of tearing each other apart, why don't they just put the band back together again? That was the start of an uncertain journey as the five original members Doc Neeson, John and Rick Brewster, Chris Bailey and Buzz Bidstrup began to re-discover the magic which made the legend.
