Radio Birdman: Radio Birdman
‘Yeah, hup!’ Timeless flight of the godfathers of Aussie garage punk, including live DVD.
Anyone familiar with the excellent Do The Pop! compilation knows that, while London and New York slugged it out for bragging rights, Australia had its own thriving garage-punk scene in the mid-to-late 70s.
However, Radio Birdman’s pivotal role in that sonic uprising – their Funhouse nights in Sydney served as the movement’s de facto HQ – often overshadows the fact they were also an incendiary rock’n’roll band in their own right.
