Following the break up of Nick Cave's former group the Birthday Party, Cave and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey put together a new band featuring Einsturzende Neubauten guitarist Blixa Bargeld, additional guitarist Hugo Race, and ex-Magazine bass player Barry Adamson. The band entered the studio on September 20th 1983, and after some sessions, emerged as Nick Cave & the Cavemen, playing their first gig in Melbourne on New Year's Eve 1983. The name was short-lived, and was soon amended to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, in reference to the final Birthday Party release, The Bad Seed EP. Most of From Her to Eternity was recorded in London, with sessions split between the Garden studio in Shoreditch, and Trident, in Soho.
