Nick Cave and the Bad Saint?

After a blistering set by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds at All Tomorrow's Parties (below), I was slightly disappointed to see Mick Harvey call it quits shortly afterwards.

That was swiftly replaced by news today of the masterstroke of the Bad Seeds adding The Saints' Ed Keupper as replacement! Wa-hay! Now, we only have to wait until their "world tour" late this year to see Keupper go head-to-head with a ferocious Warren Ellis and a manic Nick Cave... all backed by a double drum kit.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am positively firm at the thought.

Mate, for NO REAL reason I just haven't really heard NC & the BS's. I know they're raved about and I've been meaning to knock over an album but it just hasn't happened.

Recommend an album?.

Possibly due to my age, I would find it hard to go past their mid-90s efforts like Let Love In and Murder Ballads. Their new one - Dig, Lazurus, Dig - is superb also.

If you're wanting a bit of a taster, probably try the Best Of from 1998.

Hope you enjoy.

Ellis and Keupper would be great to see. I have a love/hate thing with Cave, somedays i think he is a genius and others a pretentious, stuckup private schoolboy.

Saw Ellis play with The Dirty Three years ago and i was blown away!
