Fuck yes! Finally, some new music I can sink my teeth into! This ain't some fast food that's gonna give you the runs either, this is the musical equivalent of a big juicy New York steak and a big bottle of red wine! Nick Cave and a few of his Bad Seed homeboys went into the studio and came out a new band called Grinderman that sounds a lot like Nicky-poo's early band The Birthday Party if they were older, wiser and wrote way better songs. The guitars on this bad boy sound like chainsaws at times... I love them! Plus as usual Nick is singing about really cool shit. Who can't relate to a song called "No Pussy Blues". Fuck, if Nicks got the No Pussy Blues with all the hot chicks he slays (can you say Kylie?)... then so the fuck do I! This bundle of love will hit your record stores April 10th, 2007 on Anti Records. The band will be putting out a single limited to 1,000 copies of the first song on the record, "Get It On", before that in February with cover art and b-side vinyl etching by Nick Cave... that is if you can find it. Until then I suggest hitting up their myspace page @ http://www.myspace.com/grinderman, downloading my two favorite Grinderman jams and watching two videos from the past for old times sake.
The Birthday Party - "Junkyard"
Nick Cave - "Where The Wild Roses Grow" (W/Kylie Minogue)
