I'll be quick because my day is stacked full of obligations and I'm sneaking this one in on the sly. This week's spin is Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Yes, that Nick Cave whom if you're like me, haven't really heard anything of since the 80's, though he has been making music all along. From what I've heard of the new album, Dig!!!Lazarus, Dig!!!, it will be garnering a bit more attention.

I heard this song as I drove along the other day and it struck me as something that you just don't hear every day. New, fresh, unique - and this from a band that's been together for twenty plus years. So join me in encouraging Lazarus to dig:



Enjoy! Have a great weekend while you're at it.

Wonderful choice, G, he is not an everyday singer, and he was on my mind all week. :-)

I remember the 80s but not him. I liked this, though. What did I miss?

I can't listen just yet - as my Bear pulled out my speaker cord in favor of the air conditioner for the dog (Tobin is most grateful). So I'll wait to hear it Monday. Happy obligations this lovely hot Saturday.

Catchy tune! Kind of fun to see he's still at it.

I'm laughing though at the fact that he looks like the pizza delivery guy from a 70's porno movie. Er... I mean I imagine that's what he would look like if I had ever seen one. Yeah, that.

G said...

Ariel TT, mine too! That's why I felt compelled to pop him in here for a spin. Yay :)

Ann, or at least not so...severe :)

Sounds like a perfect day to me. Thank you and the same to you. XOX

Doug, well that's a start. :) You know, Nick Cave is one of those names that I remember but I didn't own any of his music. But I say, now is as good a time as any to catch up. All of his old music that I pull up stands up pretty well.

Terry, priorities and for Tobin, I'd say miss the spin. But he is fun so do check him out at your mona leisure :)

Jeff, of course from what friends have told you. Come to think of it, he looks like my pizza delivery guy which now has me thinking...

Enjoy the rest of the weekend all!

Fun. So are they resurrection those oldie 80s now?
(feeling ancient).

tsduff said...

Cool! I finally got to listen - and it is great. I like his song, (it is echoing in my head). How did I miss him all those years ago? LOL Jeff!

G said...

Weirsdo, it just seems like yesterday, doesn't it? Oy vay.

Terry, that Jeff!

I don't think they got huge airplay early on. You certainly won't be hearing this on commercial radio either, so enjoy!
