Hot on the heels of that last ludicrous rumor, it seems there's a rumor/inevitable misconception making the rounds that the ferocious Aussie post-punk ensemble, The Birthday Party is reforming and playing some UK dates. Not sure how that theory got started, but it seems somewhat strenuously unlikely, being that Mick Harvey recently broke ranks with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds to evidently go play with The Triffids. Moreover, the notion of The Birthday Party performing without the mighty Tracey Pew on bass renders the whole endeavor a bit moot, unless of course Pew will be performing in a rare, post-death appearance.
Here they are from when they were still a going concern. Turn it up and shriek along.
