The Birthday Party - Junkyard (1983)

Messed up post-punk with a healthy dose of noise.

Short, sharp songs with Cave in full shouty mode, this
is one hell of a racket.

In '82/'83, the term "Punk" had really been taken over
by the mainstream record companys as anyone who wore
a pair of shades or owned a leather jacket.

You had to go under the radar to get or see anything with
some anger and noise - The Birthday Party and Black Flag
started to produce albums that I would use as a yardstick
to judge against.

Essential - Listen
