Radio Birdmanformed with Deniz Tek on guitar in Novemberwas one of the first punk rock bands ever formed in Australia, and is considered one of the most influential and crucial bands in Australian music history.

The group's debut four-track extended play, Burn My Eyeappeared in October Younger co-wrote a track, "Aloha Steve and Danno", for the international version, which appeared early in the following year.
However, the group disbanded in June Although generally loathed and shunned by the mainstream music industry of the day The band's iconoclastic approach, uncompromising do-it-yourself ethos and outsider status in the face of overwhelming hostility remain the stuff of legend.
Younger had teamed up with the Celibate Rifles on a live four-track EP, Rob Younger and the Celibate Rifleswhich was recorded in July at one of that group's performances in BacknangGermany. In April he was interviewed by Lovegrove: he described his recent work with New Christs and as a producer for other artists, "Yeah, I haven't done anything exceptionally odd, just work in studios, written songs and produced bands.
I've got a family to support, a little girl aged 18 months and a four year old boy, so I've even had to work a few day jobs at various times.
The Speedfreak - Sonicsurfers - Echoes doesn't have a big audience in Australia, so I'm champing at the bit to do this European tour. I think the lack of commitment on our part over the past few years hasn't helped our Australian following, so we've had a real slump. But a band's only as good as the songs that it writes, and we've got 3 Heren - Braune Augen good songs at the moment.
We can rock, we know how to rock". Younger has participated in reformations of Radio Birdman in and the following year; they reunited sporadically thereafter. But We Have Landed - The New Christs - Lower Yourselfof course, I was always on my high horse about what assholes most of the people in the music business were, but I was just scattering my antipathy around at the world really. I don't know where it all fell, whether it landed on the right people or anything like that.
