Although the best-known band of the early australian proto-punk or already punk scene of the late 70s was The Saints, the first band to wave the punk rock flag in the land down under was Radio Birdman. Formed by Deniz Tek and Aussie surfer-turned-vocalist Rob Younger in 1974, Radio Birdman's approach to rock & roll and garage rock was rooted in the high-energy, apocalyptic guitar rant of The Stooges and New York Dolls, sprinkled liberally with a little East Coast underground hard rock courtesy of Blue Öyster Cult. Their first EP "burn my eye" released in 1976, was a great record and still remains a seminal chunk of Aussie punk. Loud and snotty, with Younger bellowing his guts out and Tek on a search-and-destroy mission with his guitar, this was a great debut that set the stage for the impending deluge of Aussie punk bands waiting in the wings. After the release of their debut LP, Radios Appear (the title comes from a lyric in the Blue Öyster Cult song "Dominance and Submission"), in Australia a year later, Radio Birdman seemed poised to break Aussie punk worldwide.
