Radios Appear (Trafalgar Version)
Not yet reviewed.
'Radios Appear' was Radio Birdman's first full length album. Recorded piecemeal over 1976 and early 1977, on weekends and nights when their home base (Trafalgar Studios Sydney) had no paying customers, it was finally released on the Trafalgar label, created specifically to release their records.
In addition to mail order, the album was literally distributed by hand and out of the back of cars. The band thus wrote the Australian handbook on DIY independent music. It was hailed as a breakthrough album in Australian music, a turning point after the scene's early and mid seventies stagnation.
'Radios Appear' was given a 5 star review in Rolling Stone, and the album gave the band a needed boost to depart Sydney as a national touring entity, while still maintaining their renegade status.
Debut album from the Australian high energy band, which has been out of print for the last six years (though was in the recent CD Box Set). Remastered from original tapes, and housed in a 6 panel wallet closely reproducing the original artwork.
Bonus disc containing Burn My Eye EP and 8 studio outtakes mixed from original 2" masters
