I was introduced to the madness and the taut but unhinged power of The Birthday Party via John Peel’s Radioshow on shortwave BBC way back in the early 80s, and from then on I have been a big Nick Cave fan. I got all of his releases (well, almost!) and that includes trying to get everything done by everyone involved with Mr. Cave; right from recordings by Anita Lane to Kid Congo Powers, etc.
Here I would like to share my excitement at the new project by Mr. Cave, where he not only sings but also plays guitar. The band also features members of his Bad Seeds gang, including one Warren Ellis who was here in KL playing with his original band The Dirty Three last year.
Anyway, this is the first official video by the band promoting their first single, I Got No Pussy Blues. Enjoy!
