Peel Sessions Vol. 1 (LP)

Junkyard Records - 15 €
"In the early '80s very few bands could match the intensity and sonic violence of Australia's The Birthday Party. Fronted by a young and hungry Nick Cave the band delivered an intoxicating mix of rusty blues and mutant rockabilly, post punk sensibilities, noise and experimentation that exploded when played live and these absolutely essential collection of live radio recordings are a powerful proof of that. This first volume contains the first two Peel sessions the band recorded for the BBC, on September 1980 and April 1981."
