Underground Radio is a modern rock opera by The Electric Buddha Band composed and recorded as an homage to classic '70s rock. It's like spinning your car radio dial late at night and hearing a strange mix of rock, blues, new wave and punk songs you've never heard before. It's discovering some long lost bootleg LP in a bargain bin and spinning the vinyl until the grooves wear through to the other side and you wake up in an alternate universe where Roger Waters and David Gilmour still get along, the Clash are playing at the Fillmore East, and Jim Morrison is headlining summer festivals.

Underground Radio was inspired by the music of The Pretty Things, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Jam, The Stranglers, The Cynics, Television, Brainpool, Watershed, Tom Robinson, Paul Weller, Elvis Costello, Pink Floyd, U2, Booker T & The MGs, The Staple Singers and everything else I've listened to since 1974.
