While Bunny’s in Hamburg, a Blixa/Neubauten fix…

As I write this post, Nick Cave and Blixa Bargeld have already made history, reuniting for a spoken word performance in Hamburg, Germany, where each read various extracts from the English and German versions of Cave’s novel The Death of Bunny Munro. Those of you who had tickets for tonight’s ‘A Night With Nick Cave’ show- please post?!

MUSIC FIXES:  [Links may no longer work, sorry.  – Ed.]
Einstürzende Neubauten, Den Bosch, NL (1985-08-26) (Soundboard quality) I got this one awhile back, tx to dear Azbest! Absolutely fabulous quality for an early Neubauten show, a must-have for those who missed this gem. For those who are just beginning to know Neubauten, here is something more recent, from my collection.

PODCAST INTERVIEW: Blixa Bargeld talks with Tony Dushane, on ‘Drinks with Tony’ (2007-11-01, San Francisco’s Pirate Cat Radio) (120 min) Download MP3

Anecdote: Tony Dushane, on Blixa’s 2007 appearance with Grinderman:

When Grinderman, Nick Cave’s side project, performed at the Great American Music Hall, Blixa was invited on stage to sing “The Weeping Song” for an encore. Grinderman had a very revved up version of the song and Blixa just sang it how it was recorded. Quite funny. Quite buzzed. “Blixa seemed pretty wasted when you played The Weeping Song at Great American Music Hall,” I said to Nick Cave.
“I should hope so,” he replied with a grin. (READ IT)

Great story! Tony, you’re so cool that I’m going to plug your book, Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk. (Cover)

HEY NICK AND BLIXA,

IT IS SATURDAY NIGHT AND WE ARE GETTING READY TO PARTY HERE IN CONNECTICUT.  I WANT YOU TO KNOW WE’LL BE TOASTING YOU TWO GUYS TONIGHT, IN HOPES THAT YOU WILL FEEL THE LOVE ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD.  THANK YOU — FOR THE MUSIC. FOR THE MEMORIES. FOR ALL OF IT. (BOWS)

  1. It is March 12, 2011, and I am editing/re-posting clips in the Nick Fixes archives. There isn’t as much damage as I’d feared and I’m happy to say I’ve found more than a few wonderful conversation threads. Looking backward on all that has happened since, I feel like I’m reading someone else’s blog. How bizarre! I feel quite wistful.
