Let the howls of derision begin.


Strewth Bingo, I was only wanting to create a mild level of controversy, now you've gone and put both of us in the shit...!!! Hehehehehehe.........


I think the strength of the Bad Seeds lies in Nick Cave picking a helluva bunch of musicians around him. But with the possible exception of Warren Ellis, I don't think any of them could lead the charge from the front of the band with as much fire, charisma and raw testosterone as Nick Cave. So adding someone like Ed to the band just continues a great tradition for a great band. And probably means that the hole left by Blixa Bargeld's departure 5 years ago is better filled (with much respect to Mick Harvey).


Well, the addition of Ed to the Black Seeds is a very, very exciting development. Mick Harvey seemed to hold the band together for so many years, so it is sad to see him move on - can't imagine that it would be permanent, but one never knows. The last few times I saw the band the ensemble element of the playing seemed to be growing particularly strong. Having Ed and Warren Ellis in there would seem to make for a very strong outfit - they are two such strong stylists and have been highly influential in their own right.

I won't buy too far into the bait left with the wild claims of Messers Pete and Bingo, apart from to say that is quite unMelbournean of you Pete. Suffice to say. Cave has always struck me as a pretty interesting song writer and lyricist, Ed Kuepper is an awesome guitarist whose performance is always the most interesting part of his songs, while Waits I'd back as a outright killer on all of these fronts.

"But he started it"(says bingo as he points a finger accusingly at pete & his bottom lip begins to quiver)
My post was not to bait or lay wild claims it was simply as i stated, that being i prefer Ed Kuepper to Nick cave or Tom waits.

its ok now, bingo (reassuring pat on head), I aint no diehard Cave fanatic.

Growing up down in Melb town though its a bit of a rights of passage to go see Cave and the Bad Seeds at some stage growing up if you are a music fan, so suppose I can't help but dig some of his stuff. As I said, for me the most interesting thing he has got going is the nice line in creepy biblical, Southern Gothic lyrics that he has produced over the years. For example...

Red Right Hand

Take a litle walk to the edge of town
Go across the tracks
Where the viaduct looms,
like a bird of doom
As it shifts and cracks
Where secrets lie in the border fires,
in the humming wires
Hey man, you know
you're never coming back
Past the square, past the bridge,
past the mills, past the stacks
On a gathering storm comes
a tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat with
a red right hand


He'll wrap you in his arms,
tell you that you've been a good boy
He'll rekindle all the dreams
it took you a lifetime to destroy
He'll reach deep into the hole,
heal your shrinking soul
Hey buddy, you know you're
never ever coming back
He's a god, he's a man,
he's a ghost, he's a guru
They're whispering his name
through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
is a red right hand


You ain't got no money?
He'll get you some
You ain't got no car? He'll get you one
You ain't got no self-respect,
you feel like an insect
Well don't you worry buddy,
cause here he comes
Through the ghettos and the barrio
and the bowery and the slum
A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper in his
red right hand

You'll see him in your nightmares,
you'll see him in your dreams
He'll appear out of nowhere but
he ain't what he seems
You'll see him in your head,
on the TV screen
And hey buddy, I'm warning
you to turn it off
He's a ghost, he's a god,
he's a man, he's a guru
You're one microscopic cog
in his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by
his red right hand

...nice musical backing on this one, too.

the mix will only be up for a few more days, but its a killer this time around

the blogger is a Norlins native and includes a great written piece about the Mardi Gras Indians and how things are fairing after Katrina...

Phish, having reunited on the weekend, are giving away all three nights for free on mp3!!! God bless the economic meltdown! Jokes aside, the run sounds great considering they haven't been on stage together for 5 years. Some killer guitar solos and Page hasn't hit the keyboards with that much fervor in a long time.

Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans

I saw an Aussi band last week called the Exploders. A bloody hard workin band they are! I liked them so much I bought their mp. It's called On The Farm and underneath they describe themselves as, and I quote, " An electric country and phychodelic rock and roll record" I don't know why, but i feel a bit of Spectrum from them. A definite aussi sound and the guitarist has a great voice and mean guitar. The song, Royal Neil the Horse has been given air play on JJJ and it has a Led Zepplin feel to it. Very unexpected.

oh! oh! I just remembered. Frightened Rabbit. Exellent lyrics! Anyone who has ever had their heart and soul ripped out through their arse will get this band. Old Old Fashioned will get you jiggin around the room. The Scottish accent is great. I think it was very, very brave too be able to lay a heart open for all to see. A must listen to CD. It's called Midnight Organ Fight. Cheers

Seun Kuti - son of Fela and bro of Femi - back with his dad's band, Egypt 80. Retro Afro-funk sound, but of a high quality. Hopefully it means some touring from this amazing line-up of musos some time in the future...Also some vintage Burning Spear, a personal fest fave

Love the Presets and one of the only music 'types' I don't care for is Dance music!! You never know what's out there unles you listen!!! That;s what i love about Blues & Roots - the music I've never heard of and being blown away by it!!

Hi ScottM.
I found the site from a news letter from http://frogvilleplanet.com my first newsletter in 7 years as they didnt want to bug me???had a look on the forum & found the link.
frogvilleplanet.com is the place i found another artist i enjoy - joe west http://www.joewestmusic.com/ as well as the santa fe all stars http://www.myspace.com/santafeallstars a Joe West side project.
I had a listen to a few tunes from www.tauthal.com & most of what i heard was ok.
I had a listen to JJ Grey& Mofro & it was great as was pink floyd but bob dylan & friends was not so good(bob's mike cut out)but all up i was impressed considering its free music.
It's worth the time to have a browse IMHO , check it out & see what you think.

Buddy and Julie Miller got a new album of duets together and it sounds real good. If you like the style, it is a winner...
