When Nick came on stage it was almost impossible to see him or the band. There was, literally, just one light, from the side of the stage, used as the light show. It was a very intense, moody and dark set. But I loved it!

This is an earlier recording and really gives you the feel of what a Birthday Party gig was like. Nicely packaged. Great sound. Format: Audio CD. Nick Cave has always been one of these artists who is more than just a singer: he is a performer.
He belongs on stage, in recent years with his Bad Seeds ensemble, and in the early years with The Birthday Party. More punk rock orientated and with lyrics that seemd to be written more to be of a musical "guiding" function than to have any real literary pretentions, TBP is a live act al the way. A nice but not all to memerable bonus track is included here, called "Funhouse", performed in Athens, Greece.
The first concerts gives you all the classic stuff: from the mind bending opener "Junkyard" which sets the tone for a "slambang-in-your-face evening", to "A dead song", and from the self-mockery of "Nick the Stripper", all the way to the blasting "Blast off! The German gig has "Big-Jesus-trash-can", the hymn-for-a-car-wreck "Dead Joe", the theatrical spoof "Hamlet Pow pow pow " and a good performance of the hypnotic "She's hit". The live dvd "Pleasure heads must burn" however does contain live footages of songs from the last two E.
Both CD and DVD are a must-have for everyone who still cherishes some nostalghia for the years with the maniacle and insane Caveman-with-the-blood-shed-eyes. But as a teenager in the 80s, it was The Birthday Party's anti-music that I knew first.
I went through a phase in my teen years that involved playing lots of The Birthday Party records, and doing precisely the sort of dangerous, angry things this music makes you want to do. Song Lyrics.
