Yesterday the official video for Higgs Boson Blues premiered on Rolling Stones. The video was directed by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard. It was performed and recorded live at 3 Mills studios in East London.
Today marks the release of the fourth live album of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. It was recorded earlier this year at a live KCRW radion session in Los Angeles. The album features stripped-down version of some classics Cave songs as well as material from Push the Sky Away. A must have for any fan!

On the passing of Lou Reed
One of the very foundation stones that’s held up what we believe in, or what my generation believes in, has been taken away. The thing about Lou, for me, was that it isn’t something where I look back at the older records and think ‘What an amazing body of work.’ It was about Lou’s life lived and how extraordinary that was. How challenging that was to people. How polarizing it was, and how exciting it was. It’s a huge loss.
They are also rumoured to be playing at Lollapalooza 2014 Festival (Chicago August 1st-3rd).
To be released on March 31st, 2014 :
Tender Prey Autobiography of Nick Cave by Mark Mordue.
Major biography of modern rock icon, written with Nick Cave’s input.
Nick Cave has spent over three decades living on the artistic edge, building up a sizable following, but never compromising his vision. His global wanderings have taken in Melbourne, London, Berlin, Sao Paolo, New York, and, currently, Brighton. He now has a major body of work behind him — some 20 albums, two novels, films scores and an acting career. From his strung-out Birthday Party days in London and Berlin in the early 1980s, battling heroin addiction and overcoming the premature death of his father; through his artistic and personal relationships with the likes of PJ Harvey and Kylie Minogue, and, finally, the redemptive turns of marriage, family life and sobriety, Cave has emerged with his creativity undiminished and his reputation growing in acclaim.
TENDER PREY, Mark Mordue’s doorstep of a biography, leaves no stone unturned. Having interviewed Cave extensively as well as his close colleagues, Mordue balances this rare insight with an independent, critical spirit. In Mordue’s words the book tells ‘the story of a man on the run from himself and his demons, and how he has documented that journey in song; a movement through hell and high water with one of the world’s greatest musical artists’.

As requested here is my “review” (sounds more like being hyper enthusiastic lol).
Well this past week has been quite special to say the least! I decided to celebrate my birthday in London with three Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds concerts. One for every decade I guess! If the Apollo Hammersmith ones were well-planned (mini review and a few pictures on my blog) I had no idea I would win the Koko Camden ballot (I did enter with 4 or 5 emails! lol) I bought two tickets to share with Ann, a fantastic fan, and friend now from Belgium as well, and booked yet another weekend in London. Nick, you are a lovely, but an expensive passion (but so worth it).
