Here’s a good article on Nick Cave’s recent appearance at NYC’s Plug Awards, where he received a statue resembling something a giant might stick up his posterior:
Nick Cave: Still Venting, by Christina Black, Village Voice, 4-08-08.
Here’s Rolling Stone‘s (tiny) review — “loud, filthy and brilliant” (4-07-08).
And StarPulse’s review: Nick Cave’s Dark, Tortured Spirit Still Reigns On “Dig, Lazarus, Dig” — “wonderfully disturbing” (4-7-08).
At last! :
Being an American, I had to wait until April 8th for my copy of the new CD. Of course, I already listened to it on NC&tBS MySpace page, but that’s a big tease in comparison to having it in my hands.
Well folks, I’m overjoyed to report that yesterday I received my pre-ordered copy of Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! Right there, in the spring sunshine, I did a happy dance, then ripped open the postal envelope, tore up the stairs, and slapped it on the CD player. Ahhhhhhh.
Yes, that’s a sigh of extreme pleasure. This past month of waiting has been like an extended foreplay session. Imagine how I felt when, on a gorgeous spring day, after a very long winter, Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds helped me to reach the ‘point of no return’!
Hey. Salvation comes in many forms. Dig yourself.
Have a great day, Cave Fiends.
