This is a 4AD split record released back in 1982.
The Birthday Party are on A side with four songs played live at Venue club, London, November 1981. All the raw energy of this incredible band is here. Nick Cave almost chokes on screaming and the band is at their best. Specially the cover of The Stooges song "Loose" is a slowly exploding dynamite!
Zoo music girl
New York's evil genious Lydia Lunch is on the B side with one song - the 16 minutes long sonic nightmare "The agony is the ecstasy". Steven Severin from Siouxsie and the Banshees plays guitar creating sounds of paranoia and its a real pleasure listening to these two great musicians playing together.
