Nick Cave Monday #52: The Bad Seeds

By

In our last installment of Nick Cave Monday, it is time to pay tribute to the music mafia who are The Bad Seeds.

As you would expect, The Bad Seeds are kind of a supergroup unto themselves. Though not in an awful Chickenfoot type way.

Nick Cave Monday #50: “As I Sat Sadly By Her Side”

By

Earth is a bleak planet and the majority of humanity is selfish, each following the compulsion of their id.

All you need to do is look out the window to be disgusted at the theater of the human race.

Yet, leave it to Nick to create a beautiful, romantic ballad to capture the essence of our world of shit.

Nick Cave Monday #42: “We Call Upon the Author”

By

Many songs by Nick have a way of throwing you down for a good tickling and then, when everything is happy times, he’ll lyrically smack you upside the head. Pay attention, he’s going deeper than that.

He’ll sing you a lullaby before dropping you to the floor and sticking his boot on your throat.

Nick Cave Monday #39: “Fifteen Feet Of Pure White Snow”

By

In a dreary, isolated town stands a building. Throughout the bland hallways are rooms that have been deserted for years. Old computer equipment, basically just a bunch of shit around.

That doesn’t stop Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds from cleaning it up, bringing in some gear and throwing a moderately attended party.

Nick Cave Monday #30: “Heathen Child”

By

Grinderman announced their breakup about a year ago. But guess what Bad Seeders? Grinderman is performing two sets at Coachella in the coming days.

Let’s revisit the first single from Grinderman 2, “Heathen Child.” At the core of this humorous song is a message…In the end, we are all alone on this giant explosion that we inhabit called Earth.

Nick Cave Monday #24: “Mack The Knife”

By

One night in January 1995, you may have been alive and lucky enough to have tuned your TV to “Great Performances” a special featuring the music of Kurt Weill.

It was the coolest of the cool performing Kurt’s music including Elvis Costello, William S.

Nick Cave Monday #18: “Lucy”

By

Who is Lucy? Nick’s ex-girlfriend? A ballerina? Whoever she was, we all have our Lucy. The woman who died too young. If you don’t have a Lucy yet, be assured, Lucy will come into your life. Perhaps a few times.

When The Bad Seeds busted out with a live version of “Lucy” on their last tour, it shattered me.

We have embraced the love songs and feelings of the heart…this week it’s time to get our hands dirty. No more snuggles, let’s shed some blood.

“The Curse Of Millhaven” was originally written for P J Harvey to sing. She opted for a duet with Nick called “Henry Lee.”

I can’t fathom anyone but Mr.

Nick Cave Monday #16: “Palaces Of Montezuma”

By

The last time I interviewed Nick I told him how much I loved “Palaces of Montezuma” from the new record.

“You like that one?” he said with a smile. “It almost didn’t make it on the record.”

“You’re kidding!”

“My wife said she’d divorce me if we didn’t put it on there.”

Nick Cave Monday #15: “There She Goes, My Beautiful World”

By

Whenever I need a boot to my ass to work on writing or other projects, “There She Goes, My Beautiful World” is my soundtrack.

It’s better motivation than a Tony Robbins seminar and there’s no need to walk on burning coals or shade your eyes from the glare of his perfect white teeth.

Nick Cave Monday #14: “Wild World”

By

There’s a soundtrack for when I’m about to fall in love with a girl. That precious gap of time between getting to know each other physically and mentally before diving in the pool of vulnerability and embracing love and commitment.

Laying in bed, talking, cuddling, kissing, ravishing.
