Vinyl - 2LPs - Outside


Wild Honey Records is very proud to present, for the first time on vinyl, and in an expanded version, the quintessential DENIZ TEK album: OUTSIDE.

Originally released in March 1994, quickly becoming one of the most appreciated TEK collection of songs, it was also the first album with the enduring line-up of Deniz, Jim Dickson from The Barracudas and The New Christs, with the addition of two younger generation members of Sydney’s 80’s hard rock band The Celibate Rifles: Kent Steedman and Nik Rieth.

Following Take It To The Vertical, Outside is a more aggressive album, featuring a higher energy approach, sustained by a band that could reliably pack a solid punch and match Deniz’s onstage stamina while delivering more grit and a harder edge.

Deniz played his 60’s Epiphone Crestwood and Robin Machete guitars through the same Marshall Mk2 head he had used in the UK with Birdman in 1978,

Highlights of these sessions include DAY TO RIDE, featuring Pip Hoyle’s rolling thunder piano chords, the killer title track OUTSIDE, done in one smoking hot take, destroying the bass amp in the process, the enduring live classic BLOOD FROM A STONE, and four extra songs included in a promotional bonus disc titled INSIDE OUT, a very rare collector’s gem.

After extended touring in Europe and a few west coast shows in America, the band went back into the studio, to record 6 more songs that appeared on the EP “444, The Number Of The Beat” , featuring a version of The Stooges NOT RIGHT with Rob Younger on vocals,

All these sessions, unreleased tracks, and a couple of extra live recordings, are included for the first time in this expanded Gatefold DOUBLE-LP, completed by never seen before photos, layout by Hervè Peroncini, and liner notes by Moses Horwitz.

A must have for all Radio Birdman aficionados, Australian music enthusiasts and real rock’n’roll fans.
