5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all began for Mr Cave..., 21 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: "Door, Door" (Audio CD)
Utterly obscure to all but the most dedicated Nick Cave fans for years, Door Door has had something of a renaissance since its CD release.
But now the legend is available, is it worth it? Absolutely, and not just for Cave-men. While it does show where old misery-guts started off, it stands on its own as a classic of its time, particularly the standout track, Shiver.
Influenced primarily by the punk sounds Cave and co heard emanating from the UK, Door Door nonetheless also manages in places to desperately want to sound like David Bowie, Roxy Music and The Velvet Underground, in no particular order.
The sign of a band not yet fully formed? Yep, but these were the influences of its time, and by wearing them on its sleeve Door Door sets itself into a period many people remember with pangs of nostalgia. The whole thing comes across like a blast of stale, smoky air from the late 70s, and you can sit it with pride beside your Pistols, Costello and Television albums - it'll nestle there beautifully.
Anyway, The Boys Next Door became The Birthday Party shortly after this, and that's where the Cave story began in earnest.
