Radio Birdman første på nesten tretti år
Det australske rockbandet Radio Birdman herjet da punken fikk sitt gjennombrudd på slutten av 70-tallet. Men ga seg før de rakk å cashe inn på sin mytiske status. For et par år siden gjorde bandet en comebackrunde på rocklubbene. Nå er tida moden for bandets tredje album. »Zeno Beach« (Yep Roc Records) slippes i slutten av august.
Her er plateselskapets pressemelding i sakens anledning:
On August 22, Yep Roc Records has the distinct honor of releasing »Zeno Beach«, the first album of all-new material from Australia's Radio Birdman since their breakup over 25 years ago. Radio Birdman's reputation as one of the pioneering bands in punk music has grown steadily over the years. Despite the fact that their first record, »Radios Appear«, was criminally under-promoted and the follow-up »Living Eyes« was not even released until after their break up, Radio Birdman garnered a worldwide cult following among generations of connoisseurs of gutsy, no frills rock and roll. More recently, the compilation »1974-1978: The Essential Radio Birdman« was released world-wide by the Sub Pop label, bringing in a new legion of fans. »Zeno Beach« is a long-overdue new chapter in the Radio Birdman story. The results are no proto-punk museum piece, but rather vital new music entirely worthy of a place alongside Radio Birdman's earliest gems. And as if that wasn't enough, the band will be kicking off an actual honest-to-God tour of the states in late August!
