Frydee Grinderman (Double Dose)

Since it’s one of my favorite records of the year, I consider it an egregious oversight on my part that I haven’t yet posted about Grinderman‘s Grinderman 2. The Nick Cave-fronted band kill it all across this record, and the more I hear the album, the more almost every single track shows itself to be a demented classic. Perhaps best of all, it’s heavy.

Because it’s been out for a while (you can see my Aquarian review here) and because I couldn’t choose just one video, I’m giving an unprecedented Frydee double dose. You get a high-quality live version of “Worm Tamer” above, and the studio recording of “When My Baby Comes” below. Stick with that song whatever you do. The payoff for that build is amazing.

Thanks to everyone for checking in this week. I’m sure you’re all still working your way through the Masters of Reality interview, and that’s understandable, but make sure you check out those Bison B.C. tracks if you haven’t yet — not to mention the sheer awesomeness that is the podcast — because they certainly also rule. As for me, I’ll be all up in some homework for the rest of the night, because, yup, boring is how I roll.

Hope you enjoy your weekend. Be safe and we’ll see you back here on Monday. Till then, here’s more Grinderman:

    Is there any chance of a where to start with Nick Cave? Because I have no clue. His discography is huge.

    • Gaia,
      Well, I would, but as you say, Nick Cave’s discography is massive and I haven’t heard all of it either. Aside from this new Grinderman, here are a couple recommendations:

      Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, From Her to Eternity
      Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Murder Ballads
      Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus
      The Birthday Party, Prayers on Fire
      Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, “The Proposition” Soundtrack

      You really can’t go wrong with any of the early Bad Seeds stuff. Kicking Against the Pricks, The Good Son, Henry’s Dream. All are wins, as is the soundtrack he did with Warren Ellis to “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Easily the best part of that movie.

      Hope this helps,

    Hey man thanks a lot! Looks like I gotta get cracking. Coincidently, I just stole my copy of The Proposition back off a mate of mine and he said the soundtrack was the best part.
