Would You Invite These Guys To Your Birthday Party ?


Before Nick Cave, the solo artist, there was his ‘The Birthday Party’, originally known as ‘The Boys Next Door’. An Australian post-punk band, active from 1978 to 1983. In 1980, The Birthday Party moved from Melbourne to London, where they were championed by the late and legendary BBC broadcaster John Peel.
Disillusioned by their stay in London, the band’s sound and live shows became increasingly violent. They broke up soon after relocating to West Berlin in 1983.
Despite limited commercial success, The Birthday Party’s influence has been far-reaching, and they have been called one of “the darkest and most challenging post-punk groups to emerge in the early ’80s.
