Yeah, cute shot: too bad he's losing his beautiful hair. How'd ya get so close?

I read the first novel, the "*** & Angel" one, but has anyone here read his second? I am curious if it's any good. Any thoughts/reviews?

I told him I liked what he was wearing and if I could take a photo? He knows who I am through my dad who is also a photographer (took photos of him on a movie in the 90s) so he was really sweet about it.

His first book has to be the best book I've ever read, I never wanted it to end (and then I felt like the worst person in the world wanting to read more). The second one was a lot more... explicit but still very dark and melancholic and good.

Thanks for your review. Yeah, I liked all the biblical stuff in the first book, but I tend to like gothic and horror literature and film. The character of Euchrid is excellent!

I'll have to read the Bunny book one of these days; I heard there's a lot of sex. Coming from Mr. Cave, I am sure it'll be interesting. The man is amazing! How lucky that you were able to capture this street photo. It's great, thanks for posting it. I wanted to see the Grinderman show but it was bad timing. I did see him with the Bad Seeds at the 1994 Lollapalooza.

^first patti smith's book...now nick too has one out....had no idea. sounds very interesting from the synopsis i read on amazon. and nick is such a great storyteller...he and morrissey are the best...almost oscar wilde-ish...the way they disguise the darkest tales with wit and humour. love it.

new bad seeds album announced monday!! yess!!

Quote:
"Well, if I were to use that threadbare metaphor of albums being like children, then Push The Sky Away is the ghost-baby in the incubator and Warren's loops are its tiny, trembling heart-beat," said Nick Cave.

At the heart of Push the Sky Away is a naturalism and warmth that makes it the most subtly beautiful of all the Bad Seeds albums. The contemporary settings of myths, and the cultural references that have time-stamped Nick's songs of the twenty-first century mist lightly through details drawn from the life he observed around his seaside home, through the tall windows on the album's mysterious and ambiguous cover.

The songs on this album took form in a modest notebook with shellac covers over the course of almost a year. The notebook is a treasured analogue artefact but the internet is equally important to Nick: Googling curiosities, being entranced by exotic Wikipedia entries "whether they're true or not". These songs convey how on the internet profoundly significant events, momentary fads and mystically-tinged absurdities sit side-by-side and question how we might recognise and assign weight to what's genuinely important.

Push the Sky Away was produced by Nick Launay and recorded at La Fabrique, a recording studio based in a 19th Century mansion in the South of France, where the walls of the main studio are lined with an immense collection of classical vinyl.

"I enter the studio with a handful of ideas, unformed and pupal; it's the Bad Seeds that transform them into things of wonder. Ask anyone who has seen them at work. They are unlike any other band on earth for pure, instinctive inventiveness," said Cave.

On this album it's not always apparent what instruments the band is playing: they may be traditional musical instruments but other sounds are clearly generated by objects unrelated to musical instruments. What's being created is a collective musical language that's rich and complex.

Push the Sky Away has a clarity and sweet strangeness that's built upon the refusal to accept limitations, whether they be the traditional uses and sounds of musical instruments, lyric styles, or diminished spiritual horizons.

"I don't know, this record just seems new, you know, but new in an old school kind of way," said Cave.

Push the Sky Away, the fifteenth studio album by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds will be released in February 2013 on CD/Ltd CD-DVD / Vinyl / Digital.

Track one "We No Who U R" is available from 3rd December. The track comes as a download with every pre-order album purchase via nickcave.com or iTunes. "We No Who U R" will also be available as a single download from all digital retailers.
