The Birthday Party Junkyard on Limited Edition Colored LP

Also Available on Limited Edition 200g Vinyl

The music of seminal Australian post-punk group The Birthday Party was at turns surly and explosive, full of chaotic entropy and brilliant dark lyrics composed of teeth and the smell of brimstone. The minimal, incessant melodies laced with anarchic noise created an incomparable musical experience that heralded the careers of Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard, Mick Harvey and Tracy Pew.

Their inimitable collection of records were a tour de force, and are home to some of the most influential music to come out of the post-punk renaissance of the early 1980s. Unlike a lot of careers that are often described or qualified by their influences (a cross between this and that), The Birthday Party seemed to appear out of nowhere to ensure we all remembered the devil is still very much aware, here, and participating in all the sounds we hear.

The Birthday Party's second and final official full-length album was unleashed in July of 1982. Featuring guest contributions from bassist Barry Adamson and songwriter Anita Lane, Junkyard is a grotesque masterpiece, its tragicomic tales of sex, death and brutality couched in flamboyant grooves and increasingly lurid arrangements.
