Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Jubilee Street
*BUMPING THIS THREAD W/NEW VIDEO*
Jubilee Street – Directed by John Hillcoat – Featuring Ray Winstone
My comment at YouTube:
God almighty. Ray Winstone is superb here. The video is novelesque. Sexy. Tender. Heartbreaking spin on the power dynamics of the sex trade. I love that the characters are speaking the lyrics. Brilliant. Fwiw, I see glimmers of Jerry the Pimp (Rhinoceros Hunting in Budapest) in Nick’s performance. Stunning. Kudos all around.
Jubilee Street (from Push The Sky Away)
Wonderful. Immense. Devastating. Vocal style reminds me of Lou Reed. This song shares a similar aesthetic to David Bowie’s new release “Where are we Now?” Melancholy, poetic reflections, and the sad reminiscences of places and people long past. Bravo.
