Nick Cave Fixes would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and happy holidays. 2014 has been an exciting year for Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Some of the highlights were the release of the fantastic 20,000 Days on Earth, an amazing North American tour, Nick Cave’s first opera “Shellshock” and a solo tour of Australia & New Zealand which saw Nick resurrect Up Jumped the Devil!
As an early Christmas gift, here is a throwback to this Summer: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds at Prospect Park July 26th 2014 – NY (full concert – WeTransfer link expire on December 28th – Please comment if you missed it and want a reupload).

Most of you are familiar with our friend Jonathan Ganley’s photo essay and recollections of The Birthday Party’s 1983 Auckland Show. This time, Jon was guest photographer at the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds December 6th concert at Auckland Civic. Above is one of Jon’s analog images of the evening. I love the old-timey quality of this shot, with the gauzy back light and that iconic spectral shadow of Cave pointing at his audience. More here.*

“Nick comes on to rousing applause, walking like a slightly drunken gazelle….
He tells a funny story about his first meeting with former Bad Seed Blixa Bargeld who would only speak German to him (“and I didn’t speak German”) but then eventually spoke in perfect English.
Someone ask when was the last time he saw the late Birthday Party member Roland S Howard: “We had lunch together in Fitzroy St in St Kilda. Mick Warren and I ran into him, we talked about stuff . . . and then he borrowed $50!”
UPDATE: More photos & reviews from Saturday’s show:
