As I shuffle through the memories, Radio Birdman is blaring on cassette, I'm on a surf trip...somewhere....anywhere.....or just didn't care.
I recall my Old Man giving me my first car.... an old Holden utility, Australia's answer to it's big brother... the El-Camino.
It was lovingly painted by yours truly - fully equipped with a hand painted Radio Birdman symbol on the drivers door....fuck I was proud of that car.
About the same time I also met and lost my first love.... Funny enough - I can see myself looking out towards the open road - Wishing,and crying over spilt milk - and hoping she would call back or write ..... So this week "Love Kills" is making an appearance.
As Birdman emerged from the beaches of Sydney, so did their following. Drawing influence from the likes of the MC5 and Iggy and the Stooges, it easy to see why they were labelled as punks and fascists in small minded 70's Australia. Cold Chisel and even The Saints hadn't been heard of yet - so this was huge.
Love Kills is brilliant.....I find myself focusing on each individual element at time's - the vocals, guitar or drums and not to mention "Pip Hoyle on keys almost stealing the show.
Radio Birdman... probably the most influential and cutting edge band in Australian music history .
I urge you look into the Birdman catalogue. It's definitely a grower, and you like myself will be back for more.
