Radio Birdman - Aloha Steve and Danno
Nearly every country (or in some cases, State/Province/Territory) has a primordial pre-punk/punk pioneer band or two that became the template for much of the underground music that came later. Any subsequent band either had to cop to the influence or purposely march in the other direction. Regardless, the spectre of the iconic band(s) loomed large.
Radio Birdman (along with The Saints) served in that role for the Australian punk rock scene. For the next decade or more, a good chunk of the bands to come from down under all carried the signature Ramones/Stooges/Surf Music DNA… perfect survival traits for succeeding in the tough, yet dynamic, Australian musical outback.
