Junkyard is the third studio album by Australian post-punk group The Birthday Party. It was released on 10 May 1982 by Missing Link Records in Australia and by 4AD in the UK. It was the group's last full-length studio recording. It has received critical acclaim. Junkyard was inspired by American Southern Gothic imagery, dealing with extreme subjects like an evangelist's murdered daughter. Nick Cave's then-girlfriend Anita Lane co-wrote with him on two songs, Dead Joe and Kiss me Black. Junkyard - The Birthday Party.

Не знаю, лучшая или не лучшая для меня, но этот альбом у них точно один из лучших не считая сольные пластинки Ника Кейва и его Bad Seeds. The Party's second and final full studio album, also the final release with the five-person lineup, was perhaps its scuzzy masterpiece, its artpsychbluespunk fusion taken to at times outrageous heights. Right from its start, nobody held back on anything, Cave's now-demonic vocals in full roar while the rest of the players revamped rhythm & blues and funk into a blood-soaked cabaret exorcism. Alternative Rock. This track is not available in Russian Federation - Learn more
