Nick Cave Curses Smoke Machine Operator at Grinderman's New York Gig
Written by Administrator   
Friday, 12 November 2010

ImageThe ideal place to see Nick Cave would be onstage at hell's sleaziest nightclub. Luckily, he sets that scene wherever he goes, without the need for special effects. "Could you stop pouring smoke out of that f---ing machine, please?" Cave asked Sunday night at the Best Buy Theater in New York City, where he and his current band, Grinderman, were three songs into the fourth show of their fall North American tour.

Whoever was in charge of the venue's smoke machine promptly switched it off, and for the remainder of the group's set, Cave relied on the theatricality built into his music.

Doing so was hardly a gamble. Grinderman is a pared-down, souped-up version of the Bad Seeds, the Aussie singer's longtime backing unit, but in terms of creepiness and combustibility, the quartet shares more in common with Cave's first band, the Birthday Party. Wild-eyed guitarist Warren Ellis sometimes hacks away on a violin, and Cave occasionally trades Telecaster crunch for horror-flick organ, but Sunday night, the group mostly stuck to snarling, squealing, twin-guitar garage rock.

ImageNick Cave has been named as the musician Australians would most like to see made prime minister.

The 52-year-old rocker, who has fronted bands Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in the past, beat John Butler and Powderfinger singer Bernard Fanning in the MySpace poll.

Cave told AAP: "My first political act will be to introduce legislation forcing all Australians to lower their expectations."

Over 300,000 votes were cast in the survey, which also included Kylie Minogue, Paul Kelly and Jimmy Barnes.

Nick Cave records new single in Telford

Sunday, 22 August 2010
ImageNick Cave recorded the first single for his eagerly-awaited new album in a Shropshire studio – with King Crimson and David Bowie guitarist Robert Fripp.

The duo spent a day in June at Telford’s Scadge Studios. It has been kept hush-hush until now because music bosses EMI wanted to wait to officially announce the album, but Scadge co-owner Trev Wilkins confirmed they had hosted the pair.

He said today: “I have done a lot of work with Robert Fripp and he was asked by Nick to record some guitar takes for a new single called Heathen Child.

“We did that and sent it off, and Nick liked it so much he got in touch with Robert and asked if we could extend the track. It ended up with the both of them coming down to the studio for a day in June and us recording a new extended version, transforming the track into Super Heathen Child. It was a great day and everyone was very happy with the result.”

The single will form part of Grinderman 2 due to be released on September 13.

Nick Cave To Rewrite 'The Crow'?
Written by Administrator   
Wednesday, 28 July 2010
ImageEarlier this year, director Stephen Norrington said that his remake of "The Crow" would begin filming this summer. And while a lead actor has still not been announced, another screenwriter has potentially come on board the project.

According to The Wrap, "The Crow" producer Ed Pressman has indicated that Australian musician Nick Cave has been signed to rewrite the film. Cave has previously written the scripts for "Ghosts... of the Civil Dead" and "The Proposition," in addition to writing an unproduced "Gladiator" sequel at the behest of Russell Crowe and "The Promised Land," which is based upon the Matt Bondurant novel, "The Wettest County in the World."

Back in June, Pressman told MTV News that Norrington's screenplay for "The Crow" was both finished and "terrific." He also indicated that film was in the casting stage.

"[We've got an offer out] to a major actor and things are moving ahead very aggressively, with the aim of doing the film this year," said Pressman.

Pressman also elaborated upon how this version of "The Crow" would be different from the one that appeared in the original 1994 film starring Brandon Lee.

"The Crow itself is a creature in this movie — it's not just a bird," said Pressman. "It's got a personality and a character. Not like Godzilla exactly, but it's very different [and has] a more active role in the story."

"Obviously it's a different time and a different idea, but I think Stephen is a very talented fellow and I'm very excited to work with him," said Pressman. "I think it's a very different conception [than the original film]. After the first 'Crow,' there were so many other films that were inspired by it, by its look. Steve is an artist himself, and he's created a very different visual idea."
