I noticed while researching this band, the word "cacaphony" came up, which I guess it was quite the sonic assault. Sometimes dark, sometimes comical...always kept you guessing! By listening to them for the first time, there's a lot I like about this group...and I do like Nick Cave.

Absolutely, the Birthday Party, led by Nick Cave have proved to be really influential. You can call them gothic rock, No Wave or post-punk if you want, I call it amazing. Apparently, John Peel (who is overdue in the Non-Performer category) was a big fan.
