Made by The Commonwealth Film Unit 1972. Directed by Peter Weir. This short film provides a glimpse into the thriving Australian pop scene of the early 1970s. It showcases one song each from three different bands during a live performance at the famous TF Much Ballroom in Melbourne. The first song 'I Think of You' features the theatrical rock style of Wendy Saddington and Teardrop, with the singer and an accompanying performance artist dressed as harlequins. The exuberant Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band plays next 'Who Walks in When I Walk Out' with their unique brand of psychedelic jug-band music, followed by the experimental progressive guitar rock group Indelible Murtceps with 'A Song that I Know'.
