‘Heathen Child’: Fripp solos on 12″ colored vinyl edition (Sept 6)

Listen to ‘Heathen Child’ by Grinderman

Grinderman 2 updates & single release details follow

Update, July 26 (Pitchfork): It’s the first single from the second album from Nick Cave’s balls-out Grinderman project. It’s swampy and bluesy and you may feel like you need a wash after listening to it. The “Heathen Child” single is out on limited edition 12″ colored vinyl September 6 and features another version of the song– dubbed “Super Heathen Child”– with an ear-blasting guitar solo from the one and only Robert Fripp (David Bowie, King Crimson).The download version is backed by the B-side “Star Charmer”.

  1. In case there’s any questions about what inspired Nick Cave – here’s ‘Baby’s on Fire’, by the wondrous and amazing Brian Eno, with a mutha-f*cking smokin’ guitar solo by Robert Fripp! *WOOOOO*

    Tx to Kentishbloke for uploading this perfect gem. Tx Caroline, for the link.

  2. Here’s a little night music for all you King Crimson – Robert Fripp fans.

    King Crimson – Starless (LP: Red 1974)

    King Crimson – I Talk To The Wind (1969)
    LP: In the Court of the Crimson King
    Recorded June-August 1969, Wessex Sound Studios, London

    King Crimson – Moonchild (40th Anniversary Edition)
    LP: In the Court of the Crimson King (remastered 2009)

  3. ‘Heathen Child’ is wonderful; this has really whetted my appetite.

    I have preordered the Grinderman 2 CD from Mute. Wonder if they will have any signed copies – they do sometimes.

    Hoping for a signing event at HMV Oxford Street week commencing 13th September as they did with the first album.

    Can’t wait for the Hammersmith and Paris gigs – how about announcing a couple of (Victory Lap) gigs in London in November to round off the tour…….please. Back at the Troxy in East London would be good – they were good Bad Seeds gigs there in late 2008.

  5. Vinny! Okay, I linked all Grinderman 2 albums to their respective Amazon UK and Amazon US pages where you can read the pre-order info and product details.

    I can’t wait to see G-man in Berlin on Oct 14th! My partner Olga and I are thrilled to be going. Ten days later, on Oct 24th, on the very same stage, we’ll see Blixa and the Neubauten, which is actually a two-night affair. It’s the band’s 30 Years Tour and they plan to go out in style. Pinch me, I think I’m dreaming. Both bands, in Berlin, within 10 days of each other? Holy crap! If I survive it all I’m sure I’ll have lots of interesting stories for you folks.

  6. Loving it so far. Where do I preorder?
    Poster sounds cool, as long as it’s the band looking awesome. I framed the opened record cover of the first one, because the band looks so fucking classy in that picture.
