  1. Review: Grinderman – Garage, London
    The Guardian, 25 Sep 2010
    By Kitty Empire (Great writing – includes a citation of Anwyn Crawford’s essay.)

    More so than the female mass grave of his works, Crawford takes issue with Cave’s latter-day respectability; with his repetitiveness, with his ego, with his refusal to grow up.

    She is, often, right. It is hard, for instance, not to roll your eyes slightly at the sight of four men, many of them growing beards to compensate for their receding hairlines, conjuring up a thick racket called “Evil”, whose chorus goes “Evil! Rising! Evil! Rising!”

    But a love of popular music requires an almighty suspension of disbelief; a love of Cave presupposes the ability to roll one’s eyes and howl along with the wolfman at the same time. It is worth repeating that good art – in which we include Grinderman – drags you headlong into a parallel world where different rules apply, where poses are tried on for size, where imagination allows all concerned to rehearse taboo outcomes without anyone getting hurt.

  2. Not sure where to put this, I clicked on the link to watch the Grinderman short film and instead got “This is no available in your country” , ooooooh I don’t like when that happens. youtube thats not nice. Cheers everyone here.

  3. I’ve created a blog to gather all the setlists, reviews, pics, videos, etc. from the upcoming tour of Grinderman.

    I will attend several shows on the tour (at least 10 :P ), so I’ll have a lot of stuff to share, and I’ll also include all the contributions from other fans.
    I’ll update it after each show and maybe I’ll also add a few posts about some other Nick Cave related shows I’ll be attending, like a few concerts of Einsturzende Neubauten and the play Faust (http://www.youngvic.org/whats-on/faust)

    So far I’ve only posted a link to the pics of the rehearsals, but the first concert is tomorrow (sept 23) so there’ll be more very soon.

    So, go check it out! :)
