The Birthday Party - Prayers On Fire
so recently i have discovered that post-punk is a lot better than i gave it credit for. i am particularly enjoying this album; it reminds me more of noise rock than Joy Division. bizarre vocals over dissonant guitar chords and tribal rhythms, with horns, piano and an organ making appearances on various songs. the whole thing is catchy as hell and songs like Capers are hilariously awesome.
