Black 2 Comm 11th June 2017

Featuring Elvis Costello, This Mortal Coil, The Byrds and much, much more. Cheq out this footage of The Birthday Party performing "Fear of Guns" at the Brixton Ace on the 29th November 1982. By this point, original drummer Phil Calvert had been given the old heave ho and second guitarist Mick Harvey had inherited his battered crash cymbal. The group sound great here with staggering Roland Howard's scratching guitar and Tracy Pew's relentless driving bass-line propelling the song forward. Nick Cave's in fine growl and looking super cool to (pointy) boot. He eventually gets dragged into the baying mass and seems to push away the stage crew that are trying to rescue him, losing his Jesus t-shirt in the process.
