Radios Appear was Radio Birdman's first full length album. Recorded piecemeal over 1976 and early 1977, on weekends and nights when the studio had no paying customers, it was finally released on the Trafalgar label, created specifically to release Birdman records. The band thus wrote the Australian handbook on DIY independent music. This version of Radios Appear came about after Sire Records signed the band. The terms of the deal included the right to redo some of the original album for overseas release. The band took advantage of this to update the album, changing parts of it they didn't like. They completely re-recorded new versions of some songs, remixed others, and added some new tunes.

Radio Birdman was one of the first Australian independent bands to carry the punk label, along with the Saints. They were formed by Deniz Tek and Rob Younger in Sydney in 1974. The group influenced the work of many successful, mainstream bands, and are now considered instrumental in Australia's musical growth. Deniz Tek and Rob Younger formed Radio Birdman in mid-1974 in Sydney, having recently left their bands TV Jones and the Rats respectively.
This is primal (and prime) Radio Birdman, with Deniz Tek and Rob Younger firmly ensconced in the eye of this guitar-fueled hurricane. Tek's originals are pretty strong, especially the grimy tale of urban desolation "Murder City Nights" and the noisy freak-out "Descent into the Maelstrom. One of Australia's great rock & roll bands in all of their glory.
Radios Appear is the first full-length studio album by Australian punk rock band Radio Birdman. The album was recorded at Birdman's Trafalgar Studios, Sydney during 1976 and 1977. This laid the groundwork for future DIY punk bands in Australia
