Door, Door.

Original poster designed by Nick Cave publicising 'Door, Door', released in June 1979 and the only album by his band, The Boys Next Door. Printed offset-litho in red and black on white stock. 56x43.7cm.

Cave studied painting at the Caulfield Institute of Technology in Melbourne before dropping out to pursue music. He later stated: "I really wanted to be a painter - the lifestyle, what I considered a painter to be, I found really attractive when I was young. The solitary aspect of it. But I failed at art school, so that was that." Cave changed the band's name to The Birthday Party after relocating from Melbourne to London in 1980.
