The Birthday Party - Release The Bats


On this date in 1981, The Birthday Party released their third single as The Birthday Party (they were once The Boys Next Door). The A side was "Release The Bats". The B side was "Blast Off". Neither song appeared on an album originally but both were added to The Birthday Party's second album, Junkyard, when it was re-released on CD.
