New Radio Birdman line-up unveiled

birdman-2014The re-tooled Radio Birdman (from left) is Jim Dickson, Dave Kettley, Rob Younger, Deniz Tek, Pip Hoyle and Nik Rieth.

Radio Birdman has announced the line-up for its October-November Australian tour with Nik Rieth drumming and Dave Kettley of the New Christs on guitar.

Rieth, the former Celibate Rifles and briefly Visitors member, was behind the traps for a handful of Birdman shows in 2006. 

Kettley is a long-standing member of the New Christs and played a one-off gig in Tek and Younger, the band assembled for the Dig It Up! festival in Sydney in 2012.

They will join original members Rob Younger, Deniz Tek and Pip Hoyle, and longstanding bassist Jim Dickson. Longtime guitarist Chris Masuak is a notable omission.

    I heard that Mi Sex are reforming with former Chiorboys roadies on guitars, Jeff St Johns original bass player and the original foldback guy from Mi-Sex (also ex Avion, Zarzoff Bros and Eurogliders drum tech) on lead vocals. Maybe not the original line up but nor is budgie mans.

    Shame for getting rid of the best muso in the band.

    Why don't they call it Tek and Younger Band and leave what remains of RBs reputation along. Jerks.
