“Dirty horror show.” “Grave, visceral vocals.” Music critics of the turn of the 1980s were seriously intimidated by the recordings of the Australians The Birthday Party, and especially by their hideous, almost otherworldly concerts. After travelling to England and America, the band settled in West Berlin, but soon broke up, exhausted by their addictions and self-destructive performances.

Well worth seeing both for aficionados and, perhaps more so, those who only know Nick Cave’s vast body of subsequent work.

— Mark Demetrius, FilmInk Australia

Ian White’s film thoroughly traces the history of the Australian post-punk sensation. And even more importantly, its unbridled style in everything, from camera work to editing, channels the deadpan frenzy that was The Birthday Party.
