Biography
After the Birthday Party called it quits in 1983, singer/songwriter Nick Cave assembled the Bad Seeds, a post-punk supergroup featuring former Birthday Party guitarist Mick Harvey on drums, ex-Magazine bassist Barry Adamson, and Einsturzende Neubauten's guitarist Blixa Bargeld. With the Bad Seeds, Cave continued to explore his obsessions with religion, death, love, America, and violence with a bizarre hybrid of blues, gospel, rock, and arty post-punk -- although in a more subdued fashion than his work with the Birthday Party. On his albums with the Bad Seeds, his literary aspirations come to the forefront; the lyrics are narrative prose, heavy on literary allusions and myth-making. Often, Cave's gloomy lyrics, dark musical arrangements, and deep baritone voice recall the albums of Scott Walker, who also obsessed over death and love with a frightening passion. However, Cave brings a hefty amount of post-punk experimentalism to Walker's epic dark pop. By melding the grandeur of Walker to the spareness of the blues, as well as adding the self-conscious eclectism of post-punk and his own literate lyrics, Nick Cave the Bad Seeds have emerged as one of the most distinctive and respected artists in alternative rock. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
