On those earlies times with Boys Next Door,and Birthay Party,Nick Cave was acting on scene,like a possesed soul,it seems he mades a pacte with the devil.
While he was an heroin addict,it was a very dificult thing to substain an addiction.It just shows the desperation about been a junkie,and the issues than carries.
The post-punk music was great,played with good guitar musicians like Rowland S. Howard and Nick Harvey,and recorded memorable albums as Boys Next Door LP,and Birthay Party–“Prayers on fire” and “Junk Yard”.

I can do recordings to be transfered in digital source
the most rare original pressings,are hard-to-find albums than often sound far superior to any reissues.Instead to pay an audio engineer,new labels use a quick mastering process than loose dynamics and destructive audio,to save money.
I have submitted masters to record labels and released digitizations with quite good dynamics.
If you have a piece of vintage audio that you would like digitized,please contact me.
