Nick Cave !!!Digs!!! deep to be a man of many talents (Created June 12, 2013)
If it seems that singer/songwriter Nick Cave has been around awhile … he has. And if it seems like Cave's talents extend far beyond music and into literary and big screen territory … they do. Oft rejuvenated and never duplicated, this Aussie has been wielding the mic and the pen for decades, often with smashing success.
It was 30 years ago that Cave assembled a post-punk supergroup called Bad Seeds, with guitarist Mick Harvey on drums, Barry Adamson on bass and Blixa Bargeld on guitar. Known for their exploration of everything from religion and death to love and violence, the band was noted for its literary allusions, dark arrangements and general post-punk experimentalism.
Cave released his first album with the Bad Seeds, "From Her to Eternity," in 1984. It contained a cover of Elvis Presley's "In the Ghetto," ultimately foreshadowing much of Cave's subject matter on the follow-up "The Firstborn Is Dead," not to mention 1986's "Your Funeral…My Trial." But that was just one side of Cave that emerged before he reportedly kicked a heroin habit, fueling productivity for the entertainer and pushing him in a whole new direction.
Cave had two books published (1988's "King Ink," a collection of lyrics, plays, and prose, and 1989's "And the Ass Saw the Angel," a novel), and later appeared in the 1989 Australian film "Ghosts...of the Civil Dead." The run of new projects continued when he also recorded a soundtrack to that film, then released 1990's "The Good Son," what critics called his most relaxed album. (Six years later came "Murder Ballads," which was his most commercially successful album to date).
It's hard to put into context the number of other accomplishments Cave has had in his career. He took on a new project called Grinderman, which led to a self-titled debut release in 2007. That same year, he was inducted into Australia's ARIA Hall of Fame. In 2008, Cave and the Bad Seed released another album ("Dig!!!Lazarus Dig!!!), and that was followed by a second Grinderman recording, a world tour and the band's breakup. And finally, Cave penned the screenplay for director John Hillcoat's 2012 bootlegging film "Lawless," which also featured a score composed by Cave and Warren Ellis.
