I reckon Nick Cave at The Electric Ballroom in Camden, 1984, was really important to a 17 year old who had missed seeing The Birthday Party - I think this was Cave's first live outing since the split. He had had a track out as Nick and The Cavemen on an NME compilation tape (covering "I put a spell on you") but I think they used "Bad Seeds" as their namer on the night.

I think it was advertised as Cavemen.
It was filmed for Spanish TV too
though unfortunately it isn't the full gig.

& the debut was actually at the Fridge Brixton a few days earlier supporting Nina Hagen. I missed that gig but did see the Electric Ballroom one.
I think there are recorded sets from the whole Cavemen tour.
Got some of them from Dime.

From the Archives http://www.fromthearchives.com/nc/chronology.html is very good on the Bad Seeds live history, same with Birthday party, Gun Club and a few others.
