The Essential Radio Birdman: 1974-1978
Released: Jul 2001
Label: Sub Pop Records
This Australian band released the raging single "Burn My Eye" in 1976; it was the earliest evidence of punk Down Under, next to the music of their ideological brethren, the Saints. Radio Birdman were also one of the first punk bands to figure out that Blue Oyster Cult rules, as evidenced by "The Man With the Golden Helmet." All of these songs are great.
