Amazing Artwork – THE BIRTHDAY PARTY 40 Years Ago

Great album cover art

Band: THE BIRTHDAY PARTY (1978-1983)
Who: Maniacal Australian gang fronted by
a young Nick Cave.

Artwork: Cover of their third and final LP JUNKYARD
released 10 May 1982. 40 years ago.

Drawing by American cartoonists Ed Roth and Dave Christensen.
The image looks like how NME described the BP back then:
“The Birthday Party are awful. Subversively awful. Awesomely great.
Awesomely brilliant.”

Key track: Dead Joe
