The Birdmen Of Alkatraz (Italy) - 1989 - From The Birdcage

Excellent Italian 80's neo psychedelia. They create a very full sound with vibrant guitar buzzing, stinging and generally pervading every inch of precious vinyl. This record could easily be mistaken for the out-pourings of some time-shrouded acid crazed combo of the late 60's although some songs like "Sea of Shadows" betray their 80's roots...

Discography :
Glidin' Off (1987 EP)
From The Birdcage (1989 LP)

In the late 80's I played guitar in an Italian neo-psych band called "Birdmen of Alkatraz". We had the great honour to receive the cover art made by Rick (maybe the only european band togheter with the Cult).It was something that filled us with pride cause we were (and still are) longtime admirer of Rick's work and deeply involved with thing and music that Rick loved. Thanks Rick !
