      Radio Birdman Return!

      Quanah Humphreys reports:
      Taking a 25 year break between albums is an awfully long hiatus
      (although it's nothing on Vashti Bunyan's 35 years), but Australian
      punk rock progenitors Radio Birdman have done just that. Zeno Beach,
      the first album of new Radio Birdman material since 1981's Living
      Eyes, is slated for release August 22 on Yep Roc Records. The album
      was recorded in December at Big Jesus Burger Studios (now that's a
      name!) in Surry Hills, Australia, with Birdman guitarist Deniz Tek
      producing and Greg Wales engineering.

      Normally such a long respite between records is intolerable (Chinese
      Democracy, anyone?), but seeing as how the Aussie sextet broke up in
      1978 before their second album was even released, the delay seems
      understandable. Radio Birdman has gotten together and performed
      sporadically over the last decade, most notably at Australia's Big Day
      Out festivals in 1996 and 1997. In addition, Sub Pop stoked interest
      in Radio Birdman with the release of The Essential Radio Birdman:
      1974-1978 in 2001.
