The Birthday Party supporting Bauhaus (No Vic Godard & Subway Sect in Leeds)

From distant memory:
We arrived just in time for The Birthday Party & therefore it's recorded near the back of the club as it was really full.
There's some talking near the start by some girl - I hasten to add here she's not related to the taper!
Nick was having a bottle of whiskey in-between songs & audience banter.
There are a couple of glitches (Intro to Loose) as the Recorder had a temperamental moment where it didn't work and for whatever reason (I've forgotten) the last 2 songs are from another tape!

I've seen this concert on tape lists but this is the 'Master' version.
