New Race

Profile:
Conceived by Angie Pepper, the New Race project was intended to be a one off project that introduced Deniz' Detroit music friends to Australia and vice versa. They toured Australia in 1981, and recorded a live album, The First and the Last (1982). The music was hard, fast rock and featured Detroit legends Ron Asheton (Stooges) on guitar, Dennis Thompson (MC5) on the drums together with 3 ex Radio Birdman players, Deniz on guitar, Rob Younger on vocals and Warwick Gilbert on bass, with Chris Masuak guesting at some shows. They played a set of songs derived from The Stooges, MC5, Radio Birdman, the member's current bands and a song written jointly for the tour, Columbia. Miscommunications and financial troubles followed although most of the band members remain close friends.
