Party Day with Carl Firth in conversation with David Eastaugh

Party Day were an English goth/indie rock band formed in 1981 in Wombwell near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, originally a four-piece consisting of guitarists Martin Steele, Greg Firth, bassist Carl Firth and drummer, Mick Baker. Their sound was described as being "hard knuckleduster goth with post-punk overtones".

The band were formerly called 'Further Experiments' (1979–81)[2] but refocussed as Party Day. They released their first single, "Row the Boat Ashore" c/w "Poison" on their own label, Party Day Records in 1983, and was well reviewed - "their simpering and delightful sound is a thing of beauty".

Their second single, "The Spider" was described as "Excellent punk junk howl" and was played on John Peel's BBC Radio 1. We shall hopefully continue to see them rip up the roots of this bland desolate music industry.
