Subculture Radio’s Dave Griffiths caught up actor Lisa Brickell, musician Siri Embla and director Ruth Dudding about their brand new theatre production Mockingbird.

Based on the true stories of four generations of women and their devilish alter egos, Mockingbird is a tongue-in-cheek portrayal of both postnatal depression, which affects approximately 1 in 7 Australian women every year, and postnatal psychosis, which affects around 600 Australian women every year. Mockingbird comes to Melbourne after sell out shows in Norway and Sydney. It opens at The Butterfly Club on the 18th October.

You can listen to our interview with these talented artists below.


Stan will exclusively premiere DEUTSCHLAND86, the sequel to the international award-winning historic spy thriller DEUTSCHLAND83, on October 20, with new episodes premiering weekly. 

Created by Anna Winger and Jörg Winger, Deutschland86 picks up with Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), his Aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader) and their colleagues at the East German foreign intelligence agency (HVA) three years after DEUTSCHLAND83. Abandoned by Moscow and desperate for cash, the East German leadership pushes their secret operatives to experiment with global capitalism and save their sinking socialist ship. Long banished to Africa for his sins in 1983, Martin Rauch is now sent back into the field. Dark deals and a dangerous mission lead him to South Africa, Angola, Libya, Paris, West Berlin and finally back to East Berlin, where he must make an impossible decision.

Our hero’s journey plays out to a soundtrack of international pop music – against a backdrop of Perestroika, proxy Cold Wars, the struggle to end Apartheid, a year of terror in Western Europe, and the creeping feeling back home in East Germany, that the end just might be near.

1986: East Germany is broke, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on. Banished for his sins in 1983, Martin Rauch wallows in limbo until his Aunt Lenora conscripts him into her plan to drum up hard currency abroad. They set off on an adventure through Africa, Western Europe and finally home to East Germany. Can mafioso-style Capitalism save Communism just in the nick of time?

Directed by Florian Cossen (Das Lied In MirNSU / Die Ermittler – Nur Für Den Dienstgebrauch) and Arne Feldhusen (StrombergDer Tatortreiniger), DEUTSCHLAND86 will see the return of cast members Jonas NayMaria SchraderSylvester GrothVladimir BurlakovLudwig TrepteAlexander BeyerCarina Wiese and Sonja Gerhardt. They will be joined this season by Anke Engelke (Ladykracher), Fritzi Haberlandt (Erbsen Auf Halb 6), Lavinia Wilson (Schoßgebete) and Florence Kasumba (Black Panther, Emerald City).

Executive Producers are Anna Winger, Jörg Winger, Sebastian Werninger and Ulrike Leibfried. Directors of Cinematography are Matthias Fleischer (Heidi) and Kristian Leschner (4 Könige).

DEUTSCHLAND86 is an UFA FICTION production in cooperation with Amazon Germany and Fremantle, supported by the German Motion Picture Fund, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Creative Europe Media – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the Department of trade and industry South Africa.

The first season of the series – DEUTSCHLAND83 – won numerous accolades, including an International Emmy, Peabody Award, Adolf Grimme Award and Golden Camera award in Germany. Jonas Nay won the 2016 Golden Nymph for Best Actor at the Festival de Television in Monte Carlo, as well as the German Television Award for his portrayal of Martin Rauch.


DEUTSCHLAND86 will premiere on OCTOBER 20, exclusively on Stan

DEUTSCHLAND83 is currently streaming on Stan

M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone Pictures, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass.  Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.

Following the conclusion of SplitGlass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).

This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters is produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal.  They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who executive produces.



Outstanding Australian film Jirga, written and directed by Benjamin Gilmour, produced by John Maynard and starring Sam Smith is Australia’s Official Submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar®.

Jirga is currently screening in cinemas around the country.

Director/writer Benjamin Gilmour said ‘We are thrilled about the honour of representing Australia. For us it’s the recognition of what Jirga has to say and the fruits of human cross-cultural collaboration.  Being selected for the Oscars is also about the company our film is in. I hope Jirga will now reach a much bigger audience.’

Producer/distributor John Maynard said ‘Following the Cinefest Oz Best Film Prize and the film’s international premiere at Toronto, I could not be happier to see this film receive this new international honour.’

Jirga is a Felix Media production. Principal production investment from Screen Australia, in association with Definition Films. Executive producers are Bridget Ikin and David Gross.

Set and shot in Afghanistan in extraordinary circumstances, Jirga stars Sam Smith as a former Australian soldier who returns to Afghanistan to find the family of a civilian he accidentally killed during the war. Seeking forgiveness, he puts his life in the hands of the village justice system – the Jirga.

Papa Roach have released two new songs from their forthcoming [as yet untitled] 10th studio album,Renegade Music and Who Do You Trust?

The tracks see Papa Roach continuing to push their momentum with bonafide rock anthems and fearsome hooks. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix explains, “This song is a statement of engagement – In this day and age, who do you trust? The message of the song is to think for yourself and to trust in yourself, and the imagery of the song matches that. It’s the sea of information, all of if slightly out of focus – and you’re left floating in trying to decide for yourself. Who do you trust?”

“Papa Roach are back with two more anthemic bangers to add to their arsenal”, muses Allison Hagendorf, Spotify’s Global Head of Music, about the tracks.

Papa Roach have been praised by their peers in the rock world for achieving an “unlikely comeback”, with two decades of continued success and a career resurgence with their 2017 release, Crooked Teeth, which debuted in the Top 20 on the US, UK and Australian charts. Loudwire explains, “[Papa Roach] are entering a new era of their career. Whereas a multitude of their former counterparts have either become nostalgia acts or fallen off the grid entirely, Papa Roach are finding ways to reverse their trajectory… The sky is the limit for a band who play their cards right and are willing to kick down a few walls.”

Papa Roach have set out on a mini tour hitting ten cities across North and Latin America, before setting out on a December tour to various military bases in Asia.  The band will also be joining Shinedown and Asking Alexandria on the 2019 North American leg of the Attention! Attention! World Tour.  Additional international tour dates to be announced soon.
