Radio Birdman, one of the pioneers of the high energy rock ‘n’ roll scene in Australia, will be playing a limited number of shows this coming October and November. These shows will be a unique opportunity to catch this legendary Australian underground band whose flame has influenced a multitude of current contenders.
The line up will feature founding members Rob Younger, Deniz Tek, and Pip Hoyle, longstanding bassist Jim Dickson and returning Radio Birdman drummer Nik Rieth. Guitarist Dave Kettley of the New Christs will join on guitar.
To make things ever better the band will be reissuing their formidable back catalogue, the demand for which never ceases.
The reissue of the band’s material is initially in the form of a limited edition CD box set, out now. The box contains the three studio albums Radios Appear (Trafalgar and Sire versions) and Living Eyes, all remastered from original tapes. Each of these albums will be accompanied by a standalone bonus disc. Much of the bonus disc material is previously unreleased and will provide a treasure trove of material for diehard fans.
To cap off the box set there is a previously unreleased live concert recorded at Paddington Town Hall in 1977 just prior to the band's departure for the UK. This live recording has been mixed from master tapes that have languished forgotten for decades. The result is a totally wild and raw release that captures the band’s true primal energy. We’re sure it will prove to be the jewel in the crown for the box set.
The studio albums will also be reissued on vinyl, these being staggered over the months leading up to Christmas.
Live At Paddington Town Hall will come out on vinyl too as a double gatefold LP.

Roger Waters Guitar Legend Dave Kilminster
Releases Long Awaited New Solo Album
...and THE TRUTH will set you free... OUT NOW!
London, UK - Guitar virtuoso David Kilminster, best known for his work with Roger Waters and Keith Emerson, is preparing to release an exciting new rock album titled '...and THE TRUTH will set you free...'! This incredible project sees Dave reunited with drummer Pete Riley and bassist Phil Williams who toured with Dave as part of the Keith Emerson Band, and also recorded with Dave on his first solo rock album 'Scarlet - The Director's Cut'.
Says Dave about his new CD, “I returned from THE WALL tour, both exhausted and exhilarated, and ready to direct all of that inspiration, passion and creativity into a new project. A year later, I held the master for this album in my hand… knowing it's undoubtedly the best solo work I've ever done...”
For the last eight years Dave was the featured lead guitarist with ROGER WATERS, joining Roger on his last two record breaking world tours; 'THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON LIVE', and (the highest grossing tour by a solo act EVER) 'THE WALL LIVE'!
Critics agree that David Kilminster is one of the most extraordinary talents to emerge from the UK. He is a sought after collaborator, band member and solo performer. After touring and collaborating a number of years with ELP legend Keith Emerson, fans will also know Dave from his work along side luminaries John Wetton, Carl Palmer, Geoff Downes, Guthrie Govan and John Young, among others.
Dave has released a series of instructional DVDs for Lick Library after the success of his global satellite series 'Killer Guitar'. Dave also won the inaugural 'Guitarist of the Year' competition, run by Guitarist magazine.

Spiders & Snakes Celebrate 25th Anniversary With 9th Studio Album Year Of The Snake Featuring Guest Appearances from Members of Fishbone, Asia, Yes, Steeler, Bitch, London & More!
Los Angeles, CA - Hollywood’s underground glam-metal rockers SPIDERS & SNAKES celebrate their 25th Anniversary with their 9th studio album – and first since 2008’s Melodrama (distributed by E1) – full of 10 new original glitter-rock anthems and a gloriously campy remake of the 1978 ANGEL hit “I Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore”, featuring guest appearances from members of 80s L.A. Metal legends STEELER and BITCH. The album will be released on digital stores worldwide on October 28th, 2014 on the Sansei Records Label.
On Year Of The Snake, band founders Lizzie Grey (guitars/vocals) and Tim Yasui (drums/keys/vocals) are joined by Phil St. Vincent on bass/vocals and former SWEET SAVAGE lead guitarist/vocalist Chris Sheridan. The album shows off this lineup’s songwriting depth as each band member shares their lead vocal chops and songwriting duties – differentiating this album from previous releases sung mainly by front man Lizzie Grey.
Guest appearances by Angelo Moore (FISHBONE), Billy Sherwood (YES), Ryo Okumoto (ASIA) and Dave Soble (THE FREEWHEELERS) “put the album above and beyond even our own expectations” says front man Lizzie Grey, who was recently put back in the spotlight after the re-release of the Penelope Spheeris classic film “Decline of Western Civilization: The Metal Years” as the leader of the infamous Hollywood band LONDON.
The album was mixed by Anthony Focx (STEVEN TYLER, VINCE NEIL, NIGHTRANGER, TED NUGENT) in Nashville and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (ROB HALFORD, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, DOKKEN, YES, SEPULTURA) in Los Angeles.
A 25th Anniversary and official Record Release party will be held at the Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood (location of their first show back in 1990) on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 8:00pm.
