Nick Cave

Biography

After the demise of the Birthday Party, Nick Cave created a new vehicle for his intense vocal performances and bleak poetry. He founded the Bad Seeds, a band of music legends: Blixa Bargeld of Einsturzende Neubauten, Warren Ellis of the Dirty Three, Barry Adamson of Magazine, Kid Congo Powers of both the Cramps and the Gun Club, and Mick Harvey of the Birthday Party. Their combined talent and passion formed a powerful and emotional force in music. Cave took his lyrical and vocal inspiration from the American South, weaving together Gospel, blues, ballads and folk with a cynical, gothic sensibility and a finely-crafted, viciously heavy sound. His voice is always jagged, desperate and unpredictable, his lyrics timelessly grave, and the Bad Seeds' music strangely familiar and sensually overwhelming.
