5.0 out of 5 stars Birthday Party at their best 9 Aug 2007
By Binqy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Birthday Party are one of alternative punk/rock's too easily over-looked gems. Of everything they've done, this CD brings together their most creative music.

A CD of antagonistic variations, it contains the raw anger and talent in the absolutely classic Mutiny In Heaven, yet swings wildly to a slow dead dragging bass drum in Deep In The Woods.

If you ever own a single Brithday Party CD, this is the one to own. Nick Cave's fertile root.

Format:Audio CD
B/Party were largely interesting but unrealised through their recorded career - early singles Friend Catcher, Mr Clarinet etc scratchy and a bit tinny, Prayers on Fire LP some great ideas but inconsistent, Junkyard some real gems (Hamlet POW POW POW, She's Hit, Big Jesus Trash Can, Junkyard) but still patchy and almost abit cartoonish. Then leaden sticksman Calvert dumped, a decamp to Berlin, Harvey switches to the drum stool and the result The Bad Seed EP. A visceral monster from the frantic Sonny's Burning thru the brooding Wild World, the yawning bass chasm and controlled-loss-of-control of Fears of Gun before the slow-burn-to-manic-climatic Deep in the Woods this is a band at the absolute peak of their powers - of anybody's powers. Trimmed and tight as a 4-piece but within months things were starting to fall apart. The results on The Mutiny EP show a band imploding but still summoning up the manic rage of Mutiny! and the awesome Swampland. Tracey Pew's basslines driving them on,Cave's crazed vocals. The Hammer horror of Jennifer's Veil probably previewed some of his solo work and showed early signs of his ability to build narrative tension - he'd get a lot better at it. Now that people are starting to get interested in that great lost Bristol band of the late '80's The Rig it's worth noting that they usually closed their set with an even more manic version of Deep in the Woods than even the B/Party themselves.
