Breaking news: Mick Harvey, long-time friend of Nick Cave, and founding member of The Bad Seeds, has announced he is quitting the band. In so doing, he joins the ranks of former Bad Seed Blixa Bargeld, who quit in March 2003, as the last of the original, founding members, of Nick Cave & Bad Seeds. An era had ended. Nick Cave is now left to carry on alone. We wish Mick Harvey well and offer him a heart-felt ‘thank you’ for the 25 years he devoted to the band.
