Birthday Party - Posthoornkerk, Amsterdam 11-08-81

The Boys Next Door moved to London in February 1980 and on arrival changed the name of the band to The Birthday Party. The first year in London was a slow and difficult one but in 1981 they started touring again, around the UK, fist trip to the USA and at the end of the year they toured around Europe. This show was one show on that tour. It was recorded by VPRO and broadcast on the radio. Soundquality is very good. Unfortunatley, my tape seems to be missing the first three songs, "Nick The Stripper" + "The Dead Songs" + "She's Hit". Those first two songs from this show can be found on the Cremation bootleg LP.
