I saw them play last week... I've seen them 5 times that time seemed a little forced. Without the extra guitarist there is a Blixa sized hole on the right hand side of the stage.

Nick is the extra guitarist.

Not once during the gig did I even think about Blixa. He was great but his absence doesn't render the rest of the band incompetent.

I wanted tickets to the Seattle show(s), but they're both sold out. A friend of mine saw them perform years ago and said that it was horrendous, still I would've liked to have seen it firsthand.

agreed, and it seems like his contributions had been waning in size, and quality for the last few albums anyway.

I used to think that, but then I saw all this footage of Serge Gainsborough.

On Topic: NOT CRAP.

I enjoy the whole breadth of career of Mr Cave. I even like Grinderman; it's funny.

Steve V. wrote:I really like the NC & the BS, but they are really fucking hit-or-miss. I guess that's what a 20+year career will guarantee. Any album I like I basically love and obsess over for a while (much like the whole BP catalog), but the bad ones are so disgusting despicable it makes me want to forget the whole arrangement.


I don't know, Steve, I can only think of two Bad Seeds records that sucked--Murder Ballads and The Boatman's Call--and one that I only thought was all right (Let Love In). Well, I haven't heard Nocturama; I auditioned it in a record store, and it sounded pretty ho-hum.

But that leaves From Her to Eternity, The Firstborn Is Dead, Kicking Against the Pricks, Your Funeral My Trial, Tender Prey, The Good Son, Henry's Dream, Live Seeds, No More Shall We Part, Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus, and all of those killer 12"'s etc. collected on B-Sides and Rarities that get a hearty "not crap" from me.

All told, I count eight great records versus 2 shitty ones with 3 or 4 hanging in the balance. I think that's a pretty good batting average.

Two of my favorite Nick Cave albums (I really like The Boatman's Call).

Not crap.

I'm pretty sad. None of my friends want to go and I'm not going to the freaking Hollywood Bowl by myself. My friends musical taste = crap.

Grow up, dude. You're not gonna go and see one of the best current bands in the world because you've got no one to share a cab home with?

If I behaved like that I'd have seen precisely one band. Oasis. 15 years ago.
