The Boys Next Door was the earliest incarnation of The Birthday Party. Not terribly unlike the Birthday Party's debut album, Door Door only hints at the absolute drug nightmare these Australian lads would become. This record is rather poppy and upbeat with the instantly recognizable voice of Nick Cave cutting through. I guess they had a minor hit down under with "Shivers." The Boys Next Door also released an EP called Hee-Haw. This EP has been released as The Birthday Party as well. Apparently Cave sees Door Door as an embarrassment, but have you seen his moustache recently? Makes you wonder if Nick Cave understands the concept of embarrassment. Cosmic Hearse thinks this is a great record, no matter what Mr. Cave and his ugly cookie-duster think.
