The prolific reviewer of unfashionable lost' gems has his work cut out yet again.
It's not a huge challenge I suppose; sitting at a laptop listening to cracking music over and over again (that's when I'm not out hellraising you understand), trying to convey in mere words what this stuff has meant over the years, and trying to impart a suggestion to any pop people out there in cyber land, what a certain group or sound is all about.
Mere words.

Any-one coming to the Birthday Party now is in for a surprise.
It'll come as no surprise to learn that I think (therefore its true!) this compilation of their early singles, bits and bobs and whatever, contains their best work.

Vitally, it kicks off with a stormer: 'Mr. Clarinet' and I dear reader, trusted friend, am struggling to illustrate just how good this song is. Screeching guitar and wild sax lead us into singer Nick Caves' wailing, haunting performance. He sounds as if he's in genuine pain, not just suffering for his 'art'. First time I heard it, I thought the rest of the band were proper torturing him; you don't make noises like that unless your bits are in a mediaeval device!

Anyway, that out of the way, we are then treated to another 12 stand-out songs; each very different but each defined by the obviously insane Caves' eerie vocals.
Tellingly, and blatantly, he's coming from the Pere Ubu/ Cramps camp (former brilliant, latter tedious), and this is one of those numerous occasions when the pupil turns out cleverer than the mentor, 'Guilt Parade' indeed!

If you like any of the Birthday Party's later stuff, then you'll love this. But beware - the track listing given is wrong, and this album doesn't include Release The Bats or Blast Off. But it does include Happy Birthday, Mr Clarinet and The Friend Catcher, as well as other tracks that were recorded by the Boys Next Door just before they changed their name and early stuff by BP. For a proper track listing have a look at the import version, which is also on Amazon.
Ignore "Door Door", which even the band themselves didn't like - this is where the class stuff really begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birthday Party! 14 May 2014
By Kurk Schoner - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A complete reversal from when they were The Boys Next Door. Incredible shtuff; heroin nightmares vividly done. Of course, I'm a huge fan from back in 1982 when I first stumbled across Junkyard. I'm seeing Cave in L.A. this July, finally. R.I.P. Rowland! Truly, a must have.
5.0 out of 5 stars How I remember Nick Cave... 25 Feb. 2015
By Michael D'orazio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Incredible Hellacious Noise... One of my Top ten post punk albums of all time. No wonder Nick Cave is so important. The vocals were incredible. Rowland S. Howard was fantastic. If you are a post punk fan this is a total must....

2.0 out of 5 stars Not interesting 16 July 2015

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sorry I tried but the early rant and rage here from Nick Cave and co. is pretty incoherent and sopho/amateuric.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling, stunning, immersive Gothic rock from Down Under. 26 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This consolidation of Nick Cave and Co.'s first two releases as The Birthday Party, the Hee-Haw EP and The Birthday Party LP, is a masterpiece of macabre, chilling dirges, with haunting vocals, and the songwriting- the notes- are sheer genius. The burning, profoundly eerie guitar openings and frantic, howled pleas haunt me in my sleep and play over and over again in my head. And I love it. This album displays less of the grimy, blues-rockabilly influence that came to characterize The Birthday Party's later releases, and it also lacks the thrashing feedback. Instead, they utilize tight, anxious guitar riffs and distinctly Arabian-influenced horn solos. It sounds much cleaner and more solemn; to me, it sounds as if they were focusing more on music-writing and instrumentation, and I see this as a good thing. This is, in my opinion, the best of all their releases. If it does not chill you and immerse you in its ubiquitous Edward Gorey-like eerieness, check your pulse. If you find yourself deceased, you might like it even more.
