In what has been a stellar year for the group, in which Throw Me In The River has received universal praise, been crowned triple j’s album of the week and debuted in the top 20 of the ARIA chats, 2015 will be much of the same for the band, already filling their calendar with national and international tour dates, including a second appearance at Belgium’s Groezrock Festival.

Radio Birdman @ Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle

Last Saturday night in Newcastle one could be confused and think they had ventured into a time machine.

This type of music surely had no place in the Australian pub scene? The hell it doesn’t. This is every bit a part of music history as any other Aussie pub icon band in the last 40 years.
