GUEST WRITER AND PHOTOGRAPHER JONATHAN GANLEY on Nick Cave and the Birthday Party at Mainstreet, 1983

Friday May 3 2013 marks 30 years to the day since Nick Cave and The Birthday Party played their first New Zealand show at Mainstreet nightclub on Auckland’s Queen St. Photographer Jonathan Ganley provides the images and the story from the audience, while Simon Grigg of Propeller Records and tour promoter Doug Hood give some background and recollections of this legendary but shambolic performance, and the subsequent chaotic North Island tour…  VIEW ARTICLE

Jonathan Ganley is an Auckland photographer whose work has covered many subjects, notably New Zealand musicians. Visit Jon’s photo gallery:

Thank you, Jonathan, for publishing an expanded account of that night.  Marvelous to read your comparison of Nick’s performance 30 years ago with Grinderman at Coachella.

Folks, I don’t have the Mainstreet show but I do have the bootleg audio from two nights later, May 5, 1983, when the band played Palmerston.  Here’s an audio fix celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Birthday Party’s NZ tour.  Enjoy!

The Birthday Party – May 5, 1983 – Palmerston North, Massey University, NZ
Lineup: Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard, Tracey Pew, Des Hefner (replacing Mick Harvey)

Nick Cave: I’m Gonna Kill That Woman + Interview (1987)

November 29, 2012 8 comments

Reposting this gem:

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds + Nick Cave interview

Gonna Kill That Woman/Interview
Ljubljana, Yugoslavia 1987

Remarkable footage here, people. Fantastic close ups and generally good quality video footage of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, in Ljubljana, 1987. Includes still photos and interviews w/Nick Cave: on his first novel, And The Ass Saw The Angel, the band’s participation in Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire film (1988), and his pending exodus from Berlin. (Nick’s ‘Berlin years’ were 1983-1988, a time during which he and Blixa Bargeld, of Einstürzende Neubauten, become friends and collaborators, forming Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, with Mick Harvey, in 1984. Nick finally relocates to London, with Anita Lane, in April 1988.)*
