The Birthday Party - Live 1981-82
listening to this makes me really wish i was born in the 1960s so i could see one of The Birthday Party's shows. possibly my favourite live album, almost every song is an improvement over the already great studio versions. Nick Cave's vocals are RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME, the bass is massive and Roland's guitarwork is pretty much perfect (and far clearer than on their studio albums funnily enough). the whole thing is a bit ear-rapish and it's long as hell but worth it.
