Featuring never-before-seen personal footage from band members, dynamic animation sequences, and jaw dropping concert clips, the film provides a sweaty, electrifying front-row seat to to one of the most legendary live acts. Destined to be an instant documentary classic.

“The epitome of musical chaos and destruction.”
– The Independent

“A reckless whirl of mutant rockabilly, black-eyed swamp-blues, outlaw imagery and stomach-churning violence, The Birthday Party were one of the definitive post-punk groups, creative and destructive in equal measure.”

“Blazing hard and blindingly bright, The Birthday Party were a magnesium strip of rock & roll intensity.”
The Quietus

“Punk had perhaps correctly loathed the plasticine nature of showbiz, but The Birthday Party took the spectacle and blew it up, exposing and embracing the violence underneath.”
