Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

After goth pioneers the Birthday Party called it quits in 1983, singer/songwriter Nick Cave assembled the Bad Seeds, a post-punk supergroup featuring former Birthday Party guitarist Mick Harvey on drums, ex-Magazine bassist Barry Adamson, and Einstürzende Neubauten guitarist Blixa Bargeld. With the Bad Seeds, Cave continued to explore his obsessions with religion, death, love, America, and violence with a bizarre, sometimes self-consciously eclectic hybrid of blues, gospel, rock, and arty post-punk, although in a more subdued fashion than his work with the Birthday Party. Cave also allowed his literary aspirations to come to the forefront; the lyrics are narrative prose, heavy on literary allusions and myth-making, and take some inspiration from Leonard Cohen. Cave's gloomy lyrics, dark musical arrangements, and deep baritone voice recall the albums of Scott Walker, who also obsessed over death and love with a frightening passion. However, Cave brings a hefty amount of post-punk experimentalism to Walker's epic dark pop.

Cave released his first album with the Bad Seeds, From Her to Eternity, in 1984, which contained a noteworthy cover of Elvis Presley's "In the Ghetto," foreshadowing much of Cave's style and subject matter on the follow-up The Firstborn Is Dead. Kicking Against the Pricks, an all-covers album, broke the band in England with the help of "The Singer," which hit number one on the U.K. independent charts. The album also strengthened Cave's reputation as an original interpreter and a vocal stylist of note. Following 1986's Your Funeral...My Trial, Cave took a two-year hiatus from recording, partially to appear in Wim Wenders' 1987 film Wings of Desire, and then returned with Tender Prey, which featured Cramps guitarist Kid Congo Powers and Cave's strongest vocal performance up to that point.

Cave's productivity picked up immensely over the next two years after he kicked a heroin habit. He had two books (1988's King Ink, a collection of lyrics, plays, and prose, and 1989's And the A** Saw the Angel, a novel) published; appeared in the 1989 Australian film Ghosts...of the Civil Dead as a prisoner; recorded a soundtrack to the film with Harvey and Bargeld; and released 1990's The Good Son, his most relaxed, quiet album. Cave received his due as one of the leading figures in alternative rock when he was invited to perform on the 1994 edition of the Lollapalooza tour to promote his Let Love In album. Early in 1996, he released Murder Ballads, a collection of songs about murder. Murder Ballads became Cave's most commercially successful album to date, and, with typical perversity, he followed it with the introspective and personal The Boatman's Call in early 1997. A spoken word release, Secret Life of the Love Song, followed in 1999.

Two years later, a rejuvenated Cave teamed up with the Bad Seeds once again for the piano-laden No More Shall We Part. Nocturama was released in 2003, and the double-album Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus followed by the end of 2004. After touring in support of the album throughout 2005, Cave embarked on a new project called Grinderman with Bad Seeds members Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, and Jim Sclavunos. The group's self-titled debut was released in 2007, the same year Cave was inducted into Australia's ARIA Hall of Fame. In 2008, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds released Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! It was followed by a second Grinderman recordings -- entitled Grinderman II, followed by a world tour and the band's breakup announced by Cave on-stage in December of 2011. Cave penned the screenplay for director John Hillcoat's 2012 bootlegging film Lawless, which also featured a score composed by Cave and Warren Ellis. The duo had previously collaborated on scores for The Proposition, The Road, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and Days of Grace. In February of 2013, Cave and a streamlined Bad Seeds broke their five-year silence with the release of Push the Sky Away. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Steve Huey, Rovi

That's halarious, being that kiss is so prolific!
The lyrics you have listed for Do You Love Me? are wrong and looks like it is from some f**king Kiss song.
I'm serious, the fantastic creation is so serious,God help me,I can glimpse the edge of heaven, that I apparently have been cast out of!
The Birthday Party, The Bad Seeds, my favorite bands. Amazing.
xyzzy667
fantastic concert in San Francisco last week...
Nick Cave, what are you, you extraordinar y thing?
What can one say that hasnt been said before Nick Cave especially with the Bad Seeds is an amazing songwriter right up there with Tom Waits. .
Get From Her to Eternity on here please.
l.berendts
A true, soulful artist!
why is Henry's Dream not in the selected discography? This is an unforgivable oversight.
Just saw NIck in San Francisco with his new outfit, "Grinderman. " Always a pleasant experience. He is a true show man...
zeddkitty
if only i could make love to his voice...the sexiest ever...trans c e n d e n t .
Nick Cave's music is heartfelt and soulful for a man how has stayed true to his art exploring the undercurrent s of love, sex, obsession, god, devil, man, woman, life and death with gothic, rock and bluesy undertones he has also written some of the most beautiful ballads in comtemporary music that stand next only to the likes of Loenard Cohen, Tom Waites and Jonny Cash.

Can't believe they don't have Let Love In on here. One of their best all around albums. Shocking. But pretty complete selection otherwise! Love the Cave-man.
Nick Cave Has never caved in. Playing his own music. To a small but appreciative crowd.
amen nathan.
lol wdaloz!

Cave is so amazing, he's like a stone. Solid & rolling hard. I caught his last show in philly last yr. He & his band played a Bold & Loud show. I've seen & heard countless acts, Nick & the Bad Seeds are def. top 10. This latest album Dig L. Dig just throws him further into LEGEND. thank you
heh, dottens: never underestimat e the ability of inbred pseudo-pious cro-magnons to be offended at words or concepts which aren't actually offensive, even if those concepts are from the Bible. although, really... none of those losers should be listening to Nick Cave in the first place >.>
I went to his concert in Portland...f a n t a s t i c ! ! ! I l migliore in assoluto!!!
dottens
'And the A** Saw the Angel'???? You must be joking... the title directly references
a story from the Christian Bible. The Bible actually uses the word 'a**', and
this refers to the animal and not human anatomy. Come on... read the book... it's
actually quite good... similar to Faulkner...
While he has some songs that are mediocre, his good stuff matches or surpasses the best anyone else can dish out. His ability to envoke imagery and tell a clear story is amazing, all done with a keen sense of irony.
If I could have coffee with anyone dead or alive it would be this man.
Best.. band.. ever.
Nick Cave is a ghost, he's a god,
he's a man, he's a guru.
