Punk music theme on A Mixed Bag with Chris B on 93.7 Edge FM in the Bega Valley

Tonight on A Mixed Bag with Chris B on 93.7 Edge FM, we explored the theme of Punk music.  Included in our playlist were songs from The Saints, Radio Birdman, Iggy Pop and the Stooges,  Television, MC5, Black Flag, The Clash and of course, The Sex Pistols.  I will add a more detailed playlist in the next couple of days.

I went to Melbourne over the long weekend, and caught a fabulous Radio Birdman gig down there in the big city.

The two support bands "The Volcanics" and "Magic Bones" were absolutely fantastic.  So much energy!
The Volcanics opened the show and were relentless with their driving beat and tight sound.  Magic Bones showed their versatility by constantly swapping their instruments around, and it was great to see a female guitar player in amongst it all.  I, for one, would certainly love the chance to catch these bands live in action again sometime.

And then, the band we had all been waiting for, Radio Birdman, took to the stage.  Age shall not weary those rockers! 

I was very pleased to meet Denis Tek (legend).  He was extremely polite, and took the time to briefly chat with me, and also with my husband, who has been a Radio Birdman fan for a very long time.  Check out some of the photos below from the gig at Max Watts in Melbourne.
