RADIO BIRDMAN
Indepedent Days Festival
Bologna, Italy
Sunday, September 7 2003

I've just seen Radio Birdman's concert in Bologna, Italy, on the Independents Days Festival. It was terrific!!!

It was a real challenge for the Birdmen as, first of all, they are not so popular in Europe, and secondly, they played with bands such as Mad Caddies, AFI, Nashville Pussy (and of course guitarist Ruyter finished the concert in underwear!!!), Lagwagon, the Cramps and Rancid.

Radio Birdman began their show during the evening and unfortunately, because of the festival line-up, only played 45 minutes. But what 45 minutes of high energy...

All the great Radio Birdman songs were played, included (not in order) "Burn My Eye", "Murder City Nights", "Love Kills", "Anglo Girl Desire" (my favourite, with superb guitar solos by Chris and Deniz), "New Race", "Non Stop Girls", "Descent into Maelestrom", "Do the Pop" and, of course, "Aloha Steve & Danno".

Really, it was a great honour seeing the most famous Australian punk rockin' band on stage...in Europe !!!! - Havel Van Der Cruyssen
