Radio Birdman

Radio Birdman is one of the earliest punk bands native to Australia. Deniz Tek[?] and Rob Younger[?] formed the group in 1974 (see 1974 in music) and began recording in 1976 (see 1976 in music) with the release of Burn My Eye[?].

Their first LP, Radios Appear[?], was successful in Australia and led to a contract with Sire Records[?] (US label, home of the Ramones), which released Radios Appear internationally. It took three years to record a follow-up, Living Eyes[?], and by then, the Australian punk scene had diversified and the band broke up before the LP was released. Both members went on to take part in the formation of several other bands, mostly oriented towards hardcore punk.
