Birthday Party-Hacienda, Manchester, UK, 1982

It's funny that considering I have so many live bootlegs (thank you internet) I don't think I've posted a single one. So, I might as well start it off with one of my all time favorites. And this isn't just because Roland Howard died recently (though I will definitely miss his amazing guitar work). Nobody needs a write up on the Birthday Party, right? I can say, this concert tackles a bunch of classics and just fucking destroys them. And the sound quality is excellent. That means there's no reason not to download this. Nick Cave states at the beginning, "You really don't deserve this." He's right, but, what can I say, I'm a giver.



  1. A heads up motherfucker let it be known that the original link lead to dick. Try this new one on for size. It should work.

  2. This is so wonderfully dark, aggressive, and rad.
