Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Formed by Nick Cave and Mick Harvey after the demise of post-punk, gothic noise merchants The Birthday Party, Cave's dark melancholic obsessions, Biblical references and deep sense of romance have made the Bad Seeds one of the most visceral and evocative bands of recent times. Despite high critical praise and an unremitting outpouring of work, it wasn't until seventh album Henry's Dream (1992) that the band started to cross over into the mainstream. Featuring collaborations with PJ Harvey, Shane McGowan and the hauntingly beautiful duet Where The Wild Roses Grow with Kylie Minogue, Murder Ballads (1996) saw the band interpret traditional and new songs about crimes of passion to great acclaim. The Boatman's Call (1997) saw Cave turn to personal, piano ballads and No More Shall We Part (2001) chronicled his recovery from heroin and alcohol addiction, before the band returned to rip roaring rock'n'roll with the brilliant UK Number 4 album Dig, Lazarus, Digg!!! (2008).
