A Helluva Big Holiday Fix

December 24, 2013 6 comments

Merry Christmas!

In this post, I’ve included a list of Bad Seeds shows that I recently found online. From what I was able to sample, the quality is very good. I especially recommend the 1990 show (a few comments below). Most do not have setlist info but you can find mostly everything at Nick Cave Collector’s Hell.

: These files are NOT hosted at Nick Cave Fixes. The audio player, however, contains the host link so that you can listen here.

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds [1985-04-21] Escape Club Brighton UK

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds [1990-09-20] Vic Theatre Chicago IL

Opens with The Mercy Seat. On The Weeping Song Nick introduces Blixa and points out that he is German. They don’t flub the lyrics!  Lovely rendition of Foi Na Cruz. Intense version of The Carney. Nick says he doesn’t understand this country. (We don’t either, Nick, and we live here.)  Audience noise in between numbers but the songs are clear and well-recorded.  Fabulous concert from The Good Son tour.  I really enjoyed it.


More shows follow, lots from Push the Sky Away tour. Enjoy!

On the passing of Lou Reed

One of the very foundation stones that’s held up what we believe in, or what my generation believes in, has been taken away. The thing about Lou, for me, was that it isn’t something where I look back at the older records and think ‘What an amazing body of work.’ It was about Lou’s life lived and how extraordinary that was. How challenging that was to people. How polarizing it was, and how exciting it was. It’s a huge loss.

They are also rumoured to be playing at Lollapalooza 2014 Festival (Chicago August 1st-3rd).
