Theatre Of Hate, Modern English, The Birthday Party: London University
Andy Gill, New Musical Express, 16 May 1981
LATE AGAIN, so I missed most of the Birthday Party — who I was looking forward to the most, as it happens. Theirs is the very witching hour's sound, and to squeeze them on so early is to lose a certain bite, though what I heard of 'Catman', their final fling, showed that more than a few sparks had been flying. More of them in a week or two.
