Cave Nick & The Bad Seeds

Last seen under the gleeful guise of 2007’s Grinderman, a no-nonsense rock ‘n’ roll excuse to head down to the basement and shout, now Nick Cave returns to his full time Bad Seeds co-conspirators for this release.

“Grinderman was deliberately spare and the concepts were pretty simple,” explains Cave. “With ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!’ we allowed ourselves to get expansive.”

It picks up where Grinderman left off, filled with Stoogified electric guitar, driving beats, and Cave’s literate, seductive, and firmly tongue-in-cheek lyrics.


Review

Now that he’s officially a legend, Nick Cave could easily hang up his boots and reflect on what is a remarkable career spanning about 30 years. Clearly, he is in no mood for that. In fact, he’s busier now than probably at any other stage in his career with soundtrack scores (and script writing), side projects (Grinderman) and of course his main outfit, the Bad Seeds.

This is their first project since the awesome double album of 2004 (Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus) and it sounds great. I haven’t had long to digest it (I was only given ‘permission’ to listen to a downloaded version of it today!) but one can safely assume it’s worth your $.
