40th Anniversary reissue of the first album featuring Nick Cave, before the band’s name morphed into The Birthday Party and prior to the formation of his next band, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Includes the classic “Shivers,” which has recently been covered by the likes of Cat Power and Courtney Barnett, to name a few.
Door, Door’ basically is the debut album by The Birthday Party, though it was originally released under the name The Boys Next Door in 1979. The album was recorded before the band left Australia for London in 1980, at which point they changed their name to The Birthday Party and created the body of work for which they are most recognized. The album is different stylistically from their later work, being less dark and slightly more poppy.
This will be the first time the album will be issued on vinyl in many territories including the U.S.
