The Birthday Party were my first favourite band. I kept going with the Bad Seeds for a long time.
On 5 January 1984, I attended the first “Nick Cave: Man or Myth” concert in Sydney at the Musicians Club. Nick Cave Collector’s Hell is a great website, where I confirmed the date. This band became the Bad Seeds when Blixa Bargeld replaced Tracy Pew.
It’s partially written as a mock rock magazine review. I also wrote a lot of bogus song lyrics, in light-hearted homage to my hero.
Have a look in the TMAC Stuff Gallery at the original lyrics for (See Me Move In) My Blue Suede Shoes, Baron Fun and I Killed King Cockroach!
I cropped the text summary (p.845) of the actual song list with my ‘virtual’ song list into a square shape for Twitter. I love this bodgie image.
