This EP, together with "Mutiny", was recorded in 1982 but released in 1983 and they are the last releases from The Birthday Party. All the blood and the pain and the fun is still here but this time there's something new...the blues!
Two of the songs here ("Deep in the woods" and "Wild world") are coming straight from the swamps of Mississippi - filtered of course by the maniac spirit of the band.
"Mostly featuring songs written by Cave and Harvey together, "Bad Seed" forecasts the imminent future of Nick Cave as a solo artist and Mick Harvey as his right-hand man in more than just title. Now down to a four-piece following the departure of Calvert, the Party weren't any less confrontational than before; the opening sounds one hears is Cave yelling, "Hands up, who wants to die?"!"
