Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

A deep sack of adjectives is needed to describe Nick Cave. With his long-time band The Bad Seeds, Nick’s baritone voice—deep, haunted and haunting—has magnetised a huge catalogue of albums covering rock, post-punk, ballads, twisted blues… in fact, any style that will convey the dense, literary darkness of Cave’s vision. Full of cinematic stories of hunters and hunted, saints and sinners, lovers and losers, the songbook of Nicholas Edward Cave contains a library of vividly portrayed human experience. The Australian musician, writer and soundtrack composer is validly talked about in the same breath as Leonard Cohen and Scott Walker, company justified by his capacity to continue to make rich, enthralling albums.
