Warwick Gilbert’s Radio Birdman and Beyond Exhibition
Radio Birdman were an important staple in the development of punk rock in an Australian context, and combined the straight-up punk aesthetic with a little bit of surf rock (especially on the song ‘Aloha Steve and Danno’). The band’s bass player, Warwick Gilbert, is also an artist, having designed many of the band’s gig posters and their logo; and many more pieces in the years since. An exhibition opening tomorrow the 27th at the Rogue Pop Up Gallery showcases his artwork for the band and beyond. Warwick Gilbert himself called in to Friday Drive to tell us about his experience with the artistic world, his band, and the exhibition.
