Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

I searched it and it came out on few unconnected posts(e.g. your favorite singer...).
So I decided to open official thread.
Discuss.

BTW, what's yours favorite Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds album. I doubt between Henry's Dream and Murder Ballads.

I got "Tender Prey" out of curiosity, I had no idea what they sounded like before hand. I think "The Mercy Seat" is a really cool song. Most of the rest from what I remember just came off as REALLY lame, like something you'd hear out of a B-movie or a Halloween special. No offense to fans though, I just couldn't get into them.

Hmm, my favourite is probably Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus. It's between that and Tender Prey.

What do you guys think of his new band: Grinderman?

Listen to Henry Lee, Red Right Hand (pay attention to lyrics), actually whole Murder Ballads, or if you want his theme-easier stuff listen Into My Arms.

I've known about these guys for a while, but only just realised how good some of their **** is. I just listened to Mercy Seat four times, god damn that song is awesome.

Red Right Hand, Up Jumped The Devil, Weeping Song and other ones like that are good aswell, but I can't stand his happy songs and his love songs. That song that goes 'Come sail your ships around me' is horrible IMO.

I love Nick Cave, in a non-sexual way of course. So many good albums and songs, but still, so many I yet have.

'Murder ballads' is the obvious choice for favourite album, and his version of 'Stagger Lee' for best track, but I do prefer the Live at Brixton version of the track. Just watching a live performance of it on DVD shows and gives it the extra power.

If I were to pick anything by him I'd go with the 'Mutiny' EP when he was with The Birthday Party. But an underrated favourite of mine is the 'Kicking against the pricks' cover album.

Video of Henry Lee is teh sex!
You can feel the attraction between Nick and PJ.
Also, find What a Wonderful World sung by stoned Nick and guy from Pogues. It's Hilarious.

I'm not a huge fan of the Grinderman album. It's got some worth in some of the tracks, but as a whole it didn't do much for me unfortunately.

Man I can't believe this is the only Nick Cave thread and there's only 1 page.

I ****ing love Nick Cave in every band he's been in. The Bad Seeds are a great vehicle for his lyrics and all really talented musicians but The Birthday Party and Grinderman are the side of Nick Cave I think I like most.. Just that noisy punky dirty music with Nick howling these totally straightforward but still deep, dark lyrics.

I dunno, I'm really a huge fan of Nick's so I love all his stuff anyway.

Favourite Bad Seeds songs are probably As I Sat Sadly By Her Side and O'Malleys Bar, pretty much the whole Murder Ballads album..

Weeping Song is brilliant.

There are a few other songs I enjoy but I can't be bothered to find them through my brother's collection of Nick Cave albums again.

Nick Cave is the man. I liked the Grinderman album, but it ain't no Bad Seeds or The Birthday Party.

Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus, Tender Prey and Murder Ballads are my favourites, but I'm a fan of pretty much everything I have by them/him.

Nick Cave is a legend, an absolute music legend. One of the finest lyricists of the last 30 years and The Bad Seeds are an amazing live band. "Let Love In" and "From Her To Eternity" are my favourite records.

It ain't, but I would be disappointed if it was Bad Seeds or TBP.
Did anybody heard Mick Harvey's solo work or Dirty Three. Would I, as a big Nick Cave fan, like it?
