Blixa Bargeld announces his departure from the Bad Seeds Print E-mail
Sunday, 30 March 2003
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds' guitarist Blixa Bargeld has announced that he has left the band. As a member of the very first incarnation of The Bad Seeds, Bargeld has played alongside, and recorded with, Nick Cave for almost twenty years. Bargeld said, "This has been a very difficult decision for me and I have spent a great deal of time thinking about it. My leaving has nothing to do with artistic or personal differences with the band. I just feel it is time to concentrate on other creative areas in my life." Bargeld's departure will enable him to devote more time to his varied and expanding list of projects and interests outside of The Bad Seeds including fronting Einstürzende Neubauten as well as his work in film and theatre. Einstürzende Neubauten will tour in the U.S., Europe, and Australia later this year.

Nick Cave lamented, "We have parted as friends and we will miss him dearly". Mick Harvey, also a founding member of the band, added "Blixa is irreplaceable. Sadly, we'll have to learn to get along without him." The Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds shows currently scheduled for early summer will proceed as planned but without Bargeld. []
