Radio Birdman
Zeno Beach
(Yep Roc)
Radio Birdman, masterminded by Ann Arbor’s Deniz Tek and fronted by Aussie surfer Rob Younger, set the scene for Australian punk. Fusing the signature garage punk of The Stooges and MC5, the band became legendary to followers such as Nick Cave. But releasing only two records between ’75 and ’78 made them an obscurity to the rest of the world. Zeno Beach will change that. This is a disc of old-school garage punk that is fitted with the odd surf rock number that puts all competitors to shame; tight blasts of guitar backed by smooth organ and fronted by Younger’s trademark growls and slurs. A perfect slice of punk rock without a note wasted.
