At Pomegranate Theatre
Starts Mon 11 Nov 10.30am and Thu 14 Nov 1.30pm.
Before Suzi Quatro burst onto the music scene in 1973, there were almost no women in rock, and absolutely none who played bass and sang lead vocals and led the band and rocked out and reached millions of people around the world, re-writing the rule book for the expected image of women in rock and roll.
Singer, songwriter, bass player, bandleader, actress, radio-presenter, poet – there is only one Suzi Q, the pint-sized, leather-clad rocker who has sold more than 50 million records and in 2019 released a new album, celebrating 53 years as a working musician.
For four and a half years, Australian filmmakers Liam Firmager and Tait Brady have been working on this feature documentary about the legendary rocker, inspired by her lengthy career and fearless character, and fuelled by a sense that Suzi's trailblazing status wasn't sufficiently recognised by the music industry and contemporary audiences – especially in North America.
Along the way, Suzi Q has become revisionist history of women in rock and roll, and an intimate insight into a driven, ageless performer, with contributions from the likes of Alice Cooper, Deborah Harry, KT Tunstall, Joan Jett and Henry Winkler. (98min)
