King Ink  performed by  The Birthday Party  (1980)
Composed by Nick Cave
Arranged by Cave
From: Australia
Recommended by phil [profile] before May 2001

All birthday party songs are pretty much the same - start the drums, then the bass, and repeat these till the end of the song. Meanwhile, Nick rants over the top, and guitars come in at the dramatic bits. Sounds bad I know, but once you have listened to them about a hundred times, they suddenly become absolutely incredible. This is my favourite one - the unbelievably low bass line kicks in, and Nick yells such gems as "Express yourself! Say something! Say something! Like 'Er'! Or 'Um'! or 'Er'!" For about 6 minutes. Brilliant.

from Live 1981-82 (4AD CAD9005), available on CD
