Radio Birdman (AUS) – on tour in June/ July 2016
As one of the pioneers of the high energy rock ‘n’ roll scene, Radio Birdman will return to Europe this coming June and July. With three of the six personnel being original members, these shows will be a unique opportunity to catch this legendary Australian underground band whose flame has influenced a multitude of current contenders under the banner of ‘garage rock’.
The band have reissued their formidable back catalogue in a CD box set in 2015. Their LPs are also being reissued. Two (including a previously unreleased live double LP recorded in 1977) have already seen light of day and it is expected the remaining two will be available by the time the band tours.
Radio Birdman is also releasing two previously unheard tracks on 7′ vinyl – the Master’s Apprentices “Buried and Dead”, and Alice Cooper’s “The Ballad of Dwight Fry”. Both cover versions were originally recorded in 2004 at Hothouse Audio in Melbourne, and recently remixed and mastered. The single will be a Record Store Day exclusive.
The band features original members Rob Younger, Deniz Tek, Pip Hoyle along with long time bassist Jim Dickson. Nik Rieth (drums) and Dave Kettley (guitar) have recently been added to the line-up.”
